The World Turned Upside Down of E G Smith is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.331 billion E G 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong E G Smithian economy, worth 903 trillion Libreses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 73,251 Libreses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, planespotters are emigrating in droves, the E G Smithian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is totally unknown. E G Smith's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

E G Smith is ranked 34,384th in the world and 1st in Libcom for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
