The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Damir Stasov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.667 billion Sminishians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novyy Sotsial'nyy Gorod. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth 970 trillion Smils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 207,978 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, a government program is underway to revitalize Sminishia's beaches, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime is totally unknown. Sminishia's national animal is the White Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sminishia is ranked 118,201st in the world and 4,820th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 352.88 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
