Snakeden

Population366 million

The Colony of Snakeden is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 366 million Snakedenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Snakedenoid economy, worth 13.6 trillion scales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is 37,232 scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been reports of people marrying housepets, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, Snakedenites submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snakeden's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Snakeden is ranked 201,275th in the world and 2,005th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
