The Republic of Simestria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Ashcourt with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.18 billion Simestrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Del Sol. The average income tax rate is 34.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Simestrian economy, worth 51.6 trillion simoleons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 43,753 simoleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Simestria, Prime Minister Ashcourt has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Simestria's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Simestria is ranked 180,899th in the world and 8th in Global Right Alliance for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -2.75 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
