The Federation of Simopoles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Acamo Brownus Labradorius the Third with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 11.395 billion Simopolesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acamopia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Simopolesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,075 trillion Simopesoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,180 Simopesoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Only native-born Simopolesians who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office, people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, and when it comes to smarts Sir Acamo Brownus Labradorius the Third isn't the brightest gem in the collection. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Simopoles's national animal is the Simopian Chocolate Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Simopoles is ranked 2,158th in the world and 83rd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,066 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
