The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 32.756 billion Smugglers and Mercsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smugglers and Mercs City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 6,290 trillion pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,026 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Smugglers and Mercs City to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 304,150th in the world and 1,055th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -726.7 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
