The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.903 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, liberal, 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 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 3,601 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 157,246 cheesecakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Dr Cakeston's majority. 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 7,435th in the world and 393rd in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 440.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
