OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.865 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.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, families are only permitted to have one child, and Saundie's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 3,246th in Lazarus and 113,644th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -56 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
