OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.347 billion Saundieans 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 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 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". 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 364th in Lazarus and 9,109th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 69 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
