The Empire of Snart is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 199 million Snartians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Snartian economy, worth 1.71 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 8,609 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snart's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Snart is ranked 223,501st in the world and 8,903rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
