The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Damir Stasov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.065 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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 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 208,885 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, in this vegetarian nation the delicious smell of roasted meat is oddly commonplace, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 218,249th in the world and 8,857th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -591.71 on the Hayek Index.
