The Glorious Empire of Smebbelsnop is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hermann Valentine with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.489 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 91.0%.

The all-consuming Smebbelsnopic economy, worth a remarkable 1,200 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 185,067 GES Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 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 11,220th in the world and 1st in The Western Realm for Highest Economic Output, with 1,200 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
