The Republic of Sneyland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by ridersof05 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.171 billion Sneylandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sneylandtopia. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sneylandian economy, worth 993 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,174 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All the playground's a stage for Sneylandian schoolchildren, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. 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 Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sneyland is ranked 188,683rd in the world and 22nd in Third Imperial Union for Most Politically Free, scoring 29.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
