The Free Land of Schneeweis is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 720 million Schneeweisians 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 prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 14.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Schneeweisian economy, worth 27.4 trillion Libertads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 38,116 Libertads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, Schneeweisian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime is relatively low. Schneeweis's national animal is the Man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
