The article focuses on the way of life and the economic conditions of the Soviet Union. In spite of being the second richest country in the world, the country relies on places that it can showcase to the rest of the world. Communism has lowered the standard of living in Hungary, but when one compares the quality of life in the Soviet Union and Hungary, the quality of life in Hungary is far superior. But in spite of these their are technological advances that the Soviet Union has made since the Second World War. The Soviet Union also has a rich cultural history that dates back to the first twenty years of the twentieth century.
