The Snake Brotherhood

Population27.775 billion

LeaderReptilio I


The Federation of The Snake Brotherhood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reptilio I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.775 billion Reptilians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serpentopolis. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Snake Brotherhoodian economy, worth a remarkable 4,807 trillion ankhs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,093 ankhs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The question of 'what is Reptilio I's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. The Snake Brotherhood's national animal is the serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Snake Brotherhood is ranked 204,980th in the world and 2,061st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.91 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
