The Lovely and Joyous State of Snipland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Great Leader Snippet with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.926 billion Sniplandians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snipcoard. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sniplandian economy, worth 417 trillion Snips 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 142,729 Snips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, vaccinations are mandatory, escaped birthday balloons are torpedoed out of the sky, and cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snipland's national animal is the Snipets, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is snipism.

Snipland is ranked 276,087th in the world and 5,832nd in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.2 average smiles per day.
