The Free Land of Smarterial is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, devout population of 254 million Smarterialians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Smarterialian economy, worth 13.0 trillion Smarticle Euros a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,163 Smarticle Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, diaper sales are up, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Smarterialians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smarterial's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Smarterial is ranked 191,394th in the world and 1st in The New Smartstar for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 62,389 Standard Monetary Units.
