The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.478 billion Saundieans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, Max Barry is this year's Miss Saundie, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the cheesecake.

Saundie is ranked 257th in Lazarus and 7,021st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 43 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
