The People's Republic of Smenovekhovtia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 787 million Smenovites 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Smenovekhovtian economy, worth 12.9 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 16,354 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending recently hit a new high, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, Harry Potter books are banned, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smenovekhovtia's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Smenovekhovtia is ranked 209,969th in the world and 17th in Aeterna Publicae for Rudest Citizens, with 11.98 Insults Per Minute.
