The Disturbing Deputy Minister of Flying Snow is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Snow with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 810 million citizens of Zhou love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fenghao. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped graceful economy, worth 27.4 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 33,857 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, patriots insist that size does matter, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying Snow's national animal is the simplebot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flying Snow is ranked 201,515th in the world and 8,442nd in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.68 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
