America was the US response to the Soviet English-language propaganda magazines distributed in the US, such as USSR and Soviet Life. It was a huge ideological mistake of the communist regime as it opened a window into the American way of life for the Soviet readership behind the Iron Curtain. The magazine was a highly coveted item, to be collected or sold on the black market for exorbitant sums of money. Its distribution in the USSR was severely limited for decades, the limitations lifted only in late 1980s with the advent of "perestroika".
