The Empire of Snowsland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Snow with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.938 billion Snowslandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowsville. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Snowslandian economy, worth 353 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,175 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snowsland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
