LeaderEmperor Snow


The Empire of Snowsland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Snow with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.733 billion Snowslandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowsville. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Snowslandian economy, worth 306 trillion dollars 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 177,117 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, men stare at wall-pictures of Emperor Snow's face when they visit public urinals, news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Emperor Snow tend to disappear, and royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snowsland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Snowsland is ranked 9,064th in the world and 360th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 127 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
