The Grand Holy Empire of Neo-Philadelphia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Jaden Smith with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.75 billion Smithsonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harrisburg. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Smithsonian economy, worth 172 trillion lonicas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,846 lonicas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Emperor Jaden Smith can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, Smithism has been named as Neo-Philadelphia's national religion, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Philadelphia's national animal is the White-Tailed Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Smithism.

Neo-Philadelphia is ranked 12,659th in the world and 637th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
