The Republic of Snowvenia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.875 billion Snowvenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 27.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Snowvenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,678 trillion Flanian Pobble Beads a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 185,077 Flanian Pobble Beads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Snowvenia's national animal is the Cú Chulainn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Snowvenia is ranked 34,065th in the world and 1,451st in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,498.79 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
