The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.321 billion Smugglers and Mercsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smugglers and Mercs City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,883 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 166,555 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Smugglers and Mercs's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

Smugglers and Mercs is ranked 238,612th in the world and 76th in The Global Union Consortium for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -34.09 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
