The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.751 billion Smugglers and Mercsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smugglers and Mercs City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,082 trillion pounds a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 170,819 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smugglers and Mercs's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Smugglers and Mercs is ranked 769th in the world and 13th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 12,759.66 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
