Tsar Bomba (Russian: Царь-бомба) is the nickname for the AN602 hydrogen bomb, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated.
Developed by the Soviet Union, the bomb was originally designed to have a yield of about 100 megatons of TNT (420 PJ), but the yield was reduced to 50 megatons in order to reduce nuclear fallout. This attempt was successful, as it was one of the cleanest (relative to its yield) nuclear bombs ever detonated. Only one bomb of this type was ever built and it was tested on October 30, 1961, in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago.

The Soviet Union lasted from 1917 to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. During this time it enforced policies of collectivized agriculture that caused famine, resulting in the death of millions of people throughout the Soviet Union. While most farm land was confiscated to form huge state-owned farms, privately owned garden plots were permitted. These garden plots made up less than 1% of the Soviet Union's cultivated land, but they produced an incredible 27% of the total Soviet farm output. The privately-owned garden plots produced food out of all proportion to their size and saved millions of Soviet citizens from death by starvation. Meanwhile, the massive collectivized farms reported crop failures year after year in spite of brutal and deadly methods employed by the government to increase production.
When Mao Tse-tung's Communists came to power in China, they used Soviet advisers to establish policies for the collectivization of Chinese agriculture. As in the Soviet Union, tens of millions died of starvation as a result of abolishing private farms.
Cuba provides a more recent example of the consequences of a socialist economy. In 1993 Cuba reported an epidemic of 34,000 Cubans who had gone blind. The epidemic was traced to vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition caused by the failure of Cuba's state-operated farms and economy.
Castro meanwhile has promised to adhere faithfully to the policies of socialism, no matter the cost to the people of Cuba.
Notice that socialist countries need to build walls to keep their people from leaving. From 1949 to 1961 over half of all East Germans fled to West Germany. To prevent the remainder of its population from leaving, socialist East Germany built a massive concrete and barb wire wall in 1961. The Berlin Wall was in a sense the Soviet Union's monument to capitalism.
Observe that throughout the world the direction of immigration is from socialist countries to capitalist countries--from socialist Mexico to capitalist USA, from communist North Korea to capitalist South Korea, from communist China to capitalist Hong Kong.
