The Alliance of Smugglers and Mercs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by apemax with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.31 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 4,938 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 168,497 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, and citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint. 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 2,668th in the world and 2nd in The Global Union Consortium for Largest Populations, with 29.3 billion Capita.
