The Glorious Empire of Smebbelsnop is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Hermann Valentine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.527 billion Smebbelsnopian are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Smebbelsnopic economy, worth a remarkable 1,379 trillion GES Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 183,314 GES Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smebbelsnop's national animal is the Cute Elf Slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Valentinism.

Smebbelsnop is ranked 9,018th in the world and 1st in The Western Realm for Most Developed, scoring 87.46 on the Human Development Index.
