The Republic of Snowvenia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.612 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 are ignored. The average income tax rate is 20.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Snowvenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,048 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 frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,490 Flanian Pobble Beads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. 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 169,513th in the world and 316th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.83 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
