The United Socialist States of Snalland is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.989 billion Snallandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grande Snalland. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Snallandian economy, worth 389 trillion Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 78,085 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, Leader panders to nontraditional families, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snalland's national animal is the Western Rough-Shelled Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Snalland is ranked 47,680th in the world and 82nd in Thaecia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,615.84 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
