Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.875 billion Saundieans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, socially-minded 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 2.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 2,508 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 148,655 cheesecakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the government is spending billions of taxpayer cheesecakes to support "struggling" industries, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. 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 151,678th in the world and 2,788th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring -273.9 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
