The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vid Litvin with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.389 billion Sminishians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novyy Sotsial'nyy Gorod. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth 389 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,031 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, replacement organs are grown in vats, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Vid Litvin's bedroom, and Sminishia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 15,266th in the world and 324th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,299.02 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
