The Community of Smorkf is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Spokesperson with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.778 billion Smorkfians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The strong Smorkfian economy, worth a remarkable 1,820 trillion Kromfs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,036 Kromfs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and Spokesperson's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smorkf's national animal is the Milliduck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Smorkf is ranked 11,971st in the world and 561st in Balder for Smartest Citizens, with 84.08 quips per hour.
