The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 31.531 billion Smugglers and Mercsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smugglers and Mercs City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,908 trillion pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,382 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, if there's something strange in your neighborhood you call Brancaland, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 254,582nd in the world and 1,609th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
