The United Socialist States of SmittysHotTakes is a massive, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.507 billion SmittysHotTakesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SmittysHotTakesian economy, worth 180 trillion hottakes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,527 hottakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SmittysHotTakes's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

SmittysHotTakes is ranked 10,173rd in the world and 434th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,245.36 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
