The Communist Regime of Snekota is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mikhail with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.581 billion Sneks are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyroland. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Snekotan economy, worth 88.1 trillion Marks 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. 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 55,699 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snekota's national animal is the Red Diamondback Rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mikhailism.

Snekota is ranked 217,174th in the world and 1st in Back Alley Dumpster Fire for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
