The Commonwealth of SmoTavia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tavin with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 2.502 billion SmoTavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tavin City. The average income tax rate is 31.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The SmoTavian economy, worth 145 trillion Tavios a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,086 Tavios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

War criminals are given full state funerals, the nation has been sent to bed early for unspecified naughtiness, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SmoTavia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SmoTavia is ranked 1,017th in the world and 690th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 144 Valid Endorsements.
