The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 10.875 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Saundie with a very polite populace. 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 3,684th in Lazarus and 118,724th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
