“In cake we trust” Dr Cakeston
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The Confederacy of Saundie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Cakeston with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.732 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, liberal, outspoken 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 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Saundiean economy, worth a remarkable 3,576 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 157,318 cheesecakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The entire entry for Saundie in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saundie's national animal is the cheesecake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
