The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.208 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 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Spies caught in Saundie are never heard from again, the insurance industry is outlawed, graffiti graces every city's streets, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. 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 242nd in Lazarus and 4,748th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 250 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
