The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.503 billion Saundieans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cakeston. The average income tax rate is 5.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 3,872 trillion cheesecakes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,042 cheesecakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saundie is ranked 198,294th in the world and 7,114th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
