The Jolly Smurftastic Community of Papa Schlumpf is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Papa Smurf with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.175 billion Smurfs 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 Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient smurftastic economy, worth 787 trillion Schlumpf Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 55,556 Schlumpf Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, builders across Papa Schlumpf are blocked up with orders for new public loos, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Papa Schlumpf's radio stations, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papa Schlumpf's national animal is the Yellow Tit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Belief in Mother Earth and Smurfism.

Papa Schlumpf is ranked 222,563rd in the world and 2nd in Queens Coming Into Our Own for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
