The Precious of Smeagollum is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.488 billion Smeagollums are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Smeagollum economy, worth 97.4 trillion rings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 27,913 rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, Harry Potter books are banned, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smeagollum's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Smeagollum is ranked 43,653rd in the world and 23rd in Middle Earth for Most Inclusive, scoring 113.24 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
