    I don't think I'd survive for long in either.

    Fair enough, I agree
    I'm well aware that standard of living was atrocious in either nation; just curious as to what people would prefer - and their justifications for them.

    USSR if it could be under Gorbachev. If it were under Stalin, then it's a wash.

    I picked the USSR...I think Russian women are more attractive.

    Beyond that...it's a decision between two totalitarian regimes that ruled via intimidation and death!

    I think USSR was the lesser evil but evil nonetheless.

    Nazi Germany. If I were lucky, I could find a way to sabatoge the German War effort.

    Actually, that isn't true. The standard of living was pretty good in Nazi Germany - unless, of course, you happened to be a Jew, or a Gypsy, or Gay, or a member of a union, or a Socialist, or opposed the ruling regime in any way.

    I'd take the Soviet Union. At least, as history proved, there was a chance for evolution into something better. The exact opposite was true with the Nazis.
