The Federation of Simopoles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Acamo Brownus Labradorius the Third with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.632 billion Simopolesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 88.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Simopolesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Simopesoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 175,561 Simopesoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 66,217th in the world and 2,705th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,645.76 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
