The Confederated Comarcas of Smaragdina is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Executrix Sigrid Mondragón with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.688 billion Smaragdines 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santiago de Smaragdina. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Smaragdine economy, worth 236 trillion Vexiloes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 88,127 Vexiloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, chickens roam the streets freely, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Smaragdina's national animal is the Andean Swallow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Smaragdina is ranked 101,654th in the world and 28th in New West Indies for Highest Crime Rates, with 3.39 Crimes Per Hour.
