The Empire of Snazaland is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.257 billion Snazians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.3%.

The thriving Snazish economy, worth 123 trillion rupees a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,583 rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,577 per year while the poor average 22,125, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snazaland's national animal is the wolf.

Snazaland is ranked 222,958th in the world and 14th in Hyrule for Most Inclusive, scoring 10.87 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
