The Republic of Snippy is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.011 billion Snippyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Snippyian economy, worth 750 trillion Snips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 35,734 Snips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snippy's national animal is the Snipper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Snippy is ranked 115,556th in the world and 2,722nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
