75. You're not serious, are you?
Really? Did you live in some sort of vaccum-oriented USSR, where Stalin's purges and the literal rape and pillaging of Eastern Europe post-WWII were used to fund the world's largest military-industrial complex?

Ask those in the gulag, or most people in Poland, Hungary, the former Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria (not to mention the Baltic States) if the USSR was a "great country." I bet you'll get a different answer.

Hell, Hitler's Germany oversaw a great increase in standards of living compared to Weimar Germany.
