The Confederacy of Sniper Country is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by John Philips with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, conspicuous electricity pylons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 36.082 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, corrupt, 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 5,960 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 165,185 casings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds. 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 48,786th in the world and 19th in Gholgoth for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,022.75 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
