The Confederacy of Sniper Country is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by John Philips with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 34.715 billion Sniper Countryians 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remington City. The average income tax rate is 4.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sniper Countryian economy, worth a remarkable 5,732 trillion casings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 165,123 casings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Sniper Country's national animal is the prairie dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Sniper Country is ranked 29,990th in the world and 25th in Gholgoth for Largest Governments, scoring 22.16 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
