The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.835 billion Smugglers and Mercsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smugglers and Mercs City. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,104 trillion pounds a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,155 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The Smugglers and Mercsian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smugglers and Mercs's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.
