The Mooses' home of Sneyland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Moose with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.992 billion Sneylandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bacchus Marsh. The average income tax rate is 30.3%.

The all-consuming Sneylandian economy, worth 244 trillion Moose a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,914 Moose, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sneyland's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Moose.

Sneyland is ranked 39,310th in the world and 1,601st in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,422.09 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
