The New World Order of Smackalick is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ogn Sirhc with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.366 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ADPW. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
The nation has an international reputation for compassion, voting is voluntary, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Ogn Sirhc's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown. Smackalick's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the iPhone.
