The Federation of Smithstopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.37 billion Smithstopians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Smithstopian economy, worth a remarkable 4,684 trillion Mozzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 350,370 Mozzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smithstopia City spends billions upgrading public transport, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime is totally unknown. Smithstopia's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Smithstopia is ranked 304,474th in the world and 116th in Gay for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 14.31 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
