The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.971 billion Saundieans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 2,833 trillion cheesecakes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,679 cheesecakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Dr Cakeston's office, freed serfs and former nobles exchange awkward glances in the produce aisle, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saundie is ranked 58,650th in the world and 1,201st in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 20.41 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
