The Socialist Republic of Sminishia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Damir Stasov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.784 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 Novyy Sotsial'nyy Gorod. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sminishian economy, worth 999 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 208,992 Smils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and voting is voluntary. 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 182,922nd in the world and 6,943rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -78.11 on the Rand Index.
