The Ludicrously Successful State of Upper West Northern Schneddick is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jethro Q Walrustitty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.304 billion Upper West Northern Schneddicks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cobratown. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Upper West Northern Schneddick economy, worth 650 trillion smackeroos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,727 smackeroos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, and Jethro Q Walrustitty claims to know what infants are thinking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Upper West Northern Schneddick's national animal is the bewildering cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Upper West Northern Schneddick is ranked 11,325th in the world and 268th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 359.44 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
