The Incorporated States of Smedlandia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Scott with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 971 million Smedlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Acacia City. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Smedlandian economy, worth 73.0 trillion KPS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,157 KPS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, eminent domain has been abolished, billions of KPS are spent to take high-quality photos of the Sloth Nebula, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smedlandia's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
