The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.291 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Smugglers and Mercsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,916 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 167,840 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany apemax to meetings with foreign heads of state, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. 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 240,445th in the world and 80th in The Global Union Consortium for Fattest Citizens, with 0.88 Obesity Rate.
