The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 28.788 billion Saundieans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. The average income tax rate is 13.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 4,474 trillion cheesecakes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,416 cheesecakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, tourists call Saundiean beach towns "the fine coastline", the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and Saundiean scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saundie is ranked 637th in the world and 27th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 39.34 bananas ingested per day.
