The Commonwealth of SmirkNation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ashton Hemsworth with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.517 billion SmirkNationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smirk City. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong SmirkNationian economy, worth 113 trillion Commonwealth Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,827 Commonwealth Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Ashton Hemsworth's most personal functions, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SmirkNation's national animal is the Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SmirkNation is ranked 58,239th in the world and 2,192nd in Osiris for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
