Great thread! *sips on a Russia Imperial Stout*  8)

Wouldn't that be a United Soviet Solcialist Republic Imperial Stout?

No, back in the day it might have been a Union of Soviet Socialist Republics Imperial Stout, but that ended 19 years ago.

Union - socialism,  not a new concept.

Not necessarily. Russia remained a state after the Revolution, although a part of the Soviet Union. Soviet Russia means something specific, despite its misuse by many (including the British Government in the 1920s and 1930s).

This issue is really one of my bugbears.
