The U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), representing communism and socialism, and the U.S.A (United States of America), representing democracy and capitalism. These two countries were the "leaders", per se, of two opposing organisations: The Warsaw Pact, and NATO, respectively. This is incomplete. I highly recommend finding a better answer. I personally suggest either Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org) or Google (www.google.com).
