Imperial Snasdep

Population837 million



The Dictatorship of Imperial Snasdep is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 837 million Imperial Snasdepians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snasdeptopia. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Imperial Snasdepian economy, worth 60.9 trillion Gloorbs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 72,801 Gloorbs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the Imperial Snasdepian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Snasdep's national animal is the Cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Snasdep is ranked 125,046th in the world and 5,445th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 41.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
