The Colony of Snipe Hunters is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 17.101 billion Snipe Huntersians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Snipe Huntersian economy, worth 40.9 trillion bullets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,388 bullets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snipe Hunters's national animal is the snipe.

Snipe Hunters is ranked 156,874th in the world and 48th in The Moon for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring zero on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
