The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Damir Stasov with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.447 billion Sminishians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novsocgrad. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion Smils 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 209,791 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Sminishians into bankruptcy, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and Sminishians incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime is totally unknown. Sminishia's national animal is the White Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sminishia is ranked 6,327th in the world and 174th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,942.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
