The Royal Protectorate of Royal Snowland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Princess Snowflake with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.853 billion Snowlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowflake City. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Snowlandian economy, worth 629 trillion Bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 91,866 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Royal Snowland's national animal is the Beari and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Royal Snowland is ranked 138,937th in the world and 12th in Of Books and Stories for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
