The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.675 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 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, 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, and students cut up leftover cheesecakes during Arts and Crafts. 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 76th in Lazarus and 1,553rd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 251.7 Insults Per Minute (net).
