The Thanos did NOTHING Wrong of The Snap is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.483 billion Snapians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Snapian economy, worth 18.1 trillion rergergergs 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 black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. 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 12,207 rergergergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Helicopter parenting is on the rise, the entire entry for The Snap in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Snap's national animal is the ergerger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Snap is ranked 91,232nd in the world and 27th in 555 for Best Weather, with 101 Meters Of Sunlight.
