The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.775 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. The average income tax rate is 65%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Lazarus, students cut up leftover cheesecakes during Arts and Crafts, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 994th in Lazarus and 34,520th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 117 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
