The Queen's State of Snelltown is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.14 billion Towners enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 16.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Snelltownian economy, worth 818 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,732 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Snelltown has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, The Governor has just been declared ruler of Snelltown in an international press conference, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and Snelltown successfully hosted the Minnesota Olympics. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snelltown's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Snelltown is ranked 56,793rd in the world and 7th in Minnesota for Rudest Citizens, with 58.43 Insults Per Minute.
