** Subverted in ''Literature/TwilightoftheRedTsar''. While the USSR does go down the toilet under a [[EvilCripple paralyzed]] and [[SanitySlippage senile]] UsefulNotes/JosephStalin, China under Mao Zedong suffers even more. First when an earlier Sino-Soviet split pushes Mao into jump starting an earlier Great Leap Forward, causing widespread famine, [[spoiler: and later, when a war breaks out between Russia and China, with the former unleashing bio-weapons, nukes, and massacres on the latter]]. Life in Russia's satellite states gets so bad, [[spoiler: that armed revolts break out in the years after Stalin's death]].

Surprisingly, this is also justified from Russians' point of view. The fact is, traditional Russian culture has a generous amount of self-pity, even ''taking pride'' [[TheSpartanWay in enduring hardships]], to the point of (most subconsciously, it's that deep) ''creating ones for oneself'' if there are none around.

*** Also due to Gorbachev's "anti-alcohol campaign"... Some people have built elaborate (in some cases even computer-controlled!) moonshine stills; others simply took to drinking everything that had some alcohol in it (Wood stain? Check. Brake fluid? Check. Glue? Check and mate!) – usually after using some technique to separate ethanol from other ingredients with varying results. And this in turn caused a lot of accidents, poisonings and domestic violence. Also, vodka rationing was implemented. Perestroika sucked on many levels...



* In Mandarin Chinese, Russia is ("Éguó"). The Chinese word for "Hungry" is ("È"). Thus, in spoken Chinese, Russia is literally called "Hungry Kingdom/Country". A curious designation with at least some accuracy.

-->So the Soviets mobilized their military machine, the largest in the world, and trudged to the Yenesei, which they dutifully started defending. Another country would have called it a terrible battle that made the rivers run red with blood and the piled corpses reach almost to the sky. The Russians just called it Wednesday. Hell’s legions stalled temporarily, caught flat-footed by Moscow’s ability to throw its citizens’ lives away defending every square meter of land.
