The Glorious Empire of Smebbelsnop is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann Valentine with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.11 billion Smebbelsnopian are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.9%.

The all-consuming Smebbelsnopic economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 trillion GES Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 185,555 GES Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Women across the country are tying the knot, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smebbelsnop's national animal is the Elf Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Valentinism.

Smebbelsnop is ranked 1,849th in the world and 1st in The Western Realm for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 12,477.11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
