The United Socialist States of SmittysHotTakes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.489 billion SmittysHotTakesians 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. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming SmittysHotTakesian economy, worth 177 trillion hottakes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,975 hottakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children raised in multi-faith households claim the other deity would let them stay up later, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, nations that kill a SmittysHotTakesian can expect a strongly worded letter, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SmittysHotTakes's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

SmittysHotTakes is ranked 5,247th in the world and 265th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,192.38 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
