The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.01 billion Saundieans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. The average income tax rate is 8.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 2,272 trillion cheesecakes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,920 cheesecakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million cheesecakes of property damage, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
