Soviet Socialist Revolution

The soviet socialist revolution was the USSR, and was a Union of Soviet Republics in current day country of Russia. The joining of the republics reseambled what was near what the Russian Empire was like before the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Russian Civil War of 1918. The major different was the country of Poland was now its own country. It started as a union of only 4 soviet socialist republics, it eventually grew to hold 15 total different socialist republics, alothough the Russian SFSR remained in primary control.
Life in the USSR was very different from what it was meant to be like, and so the saying goes, everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others. Simple things were very free range. The freedom allowed for art and industry was much more than what is usually concieved. Artists had much utilities at their disposal and were allowed to experiment in great detail and were encouraged by communist leaders at the time to do so. The Russian film industry also had the same privilages, mainly to try to compete with the every growing Hollywood scene in America. The only form of censorship exloited was no negativity towards the Republic of the USSR.
These 15 separate states dissolved in December of 1981, and 13 of the orignal regrouped to form a non-binding confederation, Commanwealth of Independent States.
