The Disputed Territories of Snow 1 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.567 billion Snow 1ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 33.9%.

The thriving Snow 1ian economy, worth 114 trillion moons 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. 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 73,138 moons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the horses to repay their debt to society, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and the government pours millions of moons into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Snow 1's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Snow 1 is ranked 197,120th in the world and 1,246th in Primitiveness for Most Politically Free, scoring 24.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
