The Mountain Nation of Sneyland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Joe talin with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.537 billion Sneylandians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mountains. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Sneylandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 trillion Goats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,795 Goats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Retired racing Goats are served truffles for breakfast, women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sneyland's national animal is the Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mountain.
