The Most Serene Republic of Sneedstein is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, humorless population of 566 million Sneedsteinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sneedsteinian economy, worth 50.4 trillion Sneedcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 89,037 Sneedcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, water fights now end with thousands dead, and when the air force says "Black Hawk Down" they mean the feathers of the Sneedsteinian dark-plume goshawk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sneedstein's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sneedstein is ranked 19,570th in the world and 409th in the West Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,737.15 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
