The State of Snefaldia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by High King Yahu-resh-ishi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 29.777 billion Snefaldians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sargedaín. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Snefaldian economy, worth a remarkable 3,993 trillion Snefaldian Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 134,110 Snefaldian Ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,534 per year while the poor average 35,139, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Lavish state dinners in Sargedaín are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, the Snefaldian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is totally unknown. Snefaldia's national animal is the White Cave Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aatem Nal.

Snefaldia is ranked 60,295th in the world and 17th in Western Atlantic for Highest Poor Incomes, with 35,139.97 Standard Monetary Units.
