The Federal Republic of United States Smith is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Timothy Edwards with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.219 billion United States Smithians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Smith. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient United States Smithian economy, worth a remarkable 1,091 trillion Work Minutes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 151,155 Work Minutes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, recognizing the United States Smithian flag qualifies you for citizenship, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, and poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States Smith's national animal is the Mansuetum Domus Cattus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United States Smith is ranked 202,676th in the world and 1st in United Federation Of Edwards for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.56 Crimes Per Hour.
