The Sci-fi Double Feature of Snipeower is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Viva El Presidente with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.404 billion Snipeorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frankendoll. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Snipeorian economy, worth 179 trillion Kittens 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 74,463 Kittens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Snipeorian selfishness, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snipeower's national animal is the Jubberwox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Meowvian.

Snipeower is ranked 6,946th in the world and 350th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 96.08 Atheism Rate.
