The Dictatorship of Smib is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 362 million Smibians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Smibian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Rare Fish a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,174 Rare Fish, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Smib's national animal is the Penguin.

Smib is ranked 147,065th in the world and 3,597th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 68.35507430828 days.
