The Confederacy of Sniper Country is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Philips with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, conspicuous electricity pylons, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 32.634 billion Sniper Countryians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remington City. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sniper Countryian economy, worth a remarkable 5,299 trillion casings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,382 casings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Sniper Country's national animal is the prairie dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sniper Country is ranked 61,221st in the world and 9th in Gholgoth for Most Income Equality, scoring 41.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
