The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 19.028 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 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 2,969 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,040 cheesecakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Dr Cakeston is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saundie is ranked 140,407th in the world and 4,964th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.03 Stalins.
