The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sreten Nastasic with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.493 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 Bijelkop. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 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 211,442 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, the official Sminishian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded Sminishia to disarm. 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 2,935th in the world and 82nd in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 47.47 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
