Snowzerland is an island in the Ninja Archipelago and is also an ever-expanding Imperialist empire. Due to the origins of the country's starting capita, Snowzerland has to pay its loan back to the USA and Freezeland in monthly increments. It is the capital island of the German States, which consists of Alemania, Osterreach, Lichenstien, and itself.
Snowzerland Island was first discovered by Swiss Ninja in 2000. Now, Swiss Ninja was a Hochstadt. He meant to do serious buisness with his life. So, he decided to become a ruler, like his brother Gaston. He went about and recruited 2000 of the smartest and strongest people he could find, and had them build a small city. He also started to take loans from the USA. The USA was happy to fund a new country, even if it was in the middle of nowhere.
About 10 years later, Snowzerland was a thriving tourist spot, full of scientific greatness and a great militia. The USA poured more tax money into Swiss's coffers, and he started to buy more citizens. Not only that, but his original citizens were starting to have children. These children created cities, made more jobs, and started an actual military. In this time, Snowzerland became a good nation, with 3 great cities. However, Swiss had a good military, and took over all the other islands in the Ninja Archepelego, like Holyswissia (had the nerve to name it after himself), Frankterre, and Osterreach. He offered jobs, education, better technology, and a great military. It was almost as if Snowzerland had sprung up overnight, as the colonies were thrilled and created more jobs. However, jobs started to run out...until Swiss introduced the military. The military was the prime job for every good Snoss, and Swiss was thrilled to see that he had a decent army in this time.
Once he had assembled his army, he started attacking remote colonies and pillaging them, and taking people back to Snowzerland to work as civilians. The USA saw this, and wasn't happy. They started to think of Swiss not as a realistic entrepeneur, but as a triggerhappy bandit. Immediently, they realized how much the Snoss owed them. They sent an envoy over to collect the money.
The envoy returned, covered in mud and ice, and a message. The message?
"HECK NO, USA. -Swiss Ninja".
The USA was furious. How dare Swiss do this! They immediently stopped loaning to Swiss, but it was too late. Snowzerland, the regime of Swiss, had started. After extending diplomacy to West Pengolia, however, the GSWI started. After that, there were 5 Great Snowzerland Wars, and each time Swiss was hindered by the Hochstadt Gang and the bravery of the USA. However, in the GSWV, Snowzerland was bombed by a Triple X. Luckily, they shot it out of the sky before any casualties happened. Nevertheless, the USA attacked them again after discovering the plans for a Avatar Warmech V10, when they bombed Snowzerland completely and devastating the whole country. Although things may have looked bad and Lake Zurich became a bay, the explosions caused the discovery of limitless platinum mines that were hidden below the ground near the coastline of the island and the bay. However, Swiss, despite forming Snowzerland, had lost some of his genius, and sold the land he had conquered in Freezeland. Despite being imperious, proud, prideful, not as smart as he was in his youth, and VERY narcisstic, Swiss is still a decent ruler.
The Head of State and supreme leader is the Emperor. This is a hereditary title, the highest rank of nobility. The emperor has supreme power which he can use without any limits. Swiss Ninja holds the title emperor. The second in command is the Archduke of Snowzerland. The archduke is the second in command to the Emperor and also the Head of Government. The position is always hereditary but the Emperor has rights to appoint a new one. There have only ever been two, including the current one, Jsudsu9988. The Lord Protector isn't hereditary but chosen by the emperor. The Lord Protector is the highest rank in the military. He follows Swiss Ninja's military will. Only he can appoint Field Marshalls or Generals and he must always bring a military report to Swiss Ninja. Only Jsudsu998 and Swiss Ninja have the right to appoint any new nobles. Any members of the royal family whose not the Emperor has the right to have the Prince or Princess. Yes that means that Gaston is a prince (though he removed the title) as is Cheddar Ninja.
The legislature consists of 10 representatives from each city, 1 whose the duke/duchess of the city while the others are elected to meet at the headquarters in Geneva. There is no upper or lower house, just the Snowzerland Council. The dukes sit around on the east wing the Archduke while the elected sits on the north and south sides of the building. The west is the entrance and exit. The representatives then propose new laws based on the requests of the peoples and the representatives. The representatives either agree or disagree on it and what the majority vote is is what the decision will be. It's always a free vote.
The judicary is divided into two departments: civil and law. Civil deals with domestic and civil issues such as family breakdowns or disagreements in a community. Law deals with crimes. All courts have no jury. There are two types of courts used in the civil department and they're the county courts and the high courts. The county court is where a case will go first. There is a judge, the defendant and the plaintiff. The judge listens to both sides of the case and if it remains undecided then it goes to the high court. There is only one high court and it's the High Court of Geneva. Extreme cases go there however they're rare. Undecided cases go there more often then extreme cases. The law department deals with crimes. It's divided into a court of justice, the supreme cout and finally the Emperor's court. The court of justice is for minor, the supreme court is for serious crime and the Emperor's court is a court for high treason; in other words a crime against the emperor. The Emperor, the Lord Protector and the Archduke are the three judges. They listen to the defendants plead who has lawyer to help him or her. The Lord Protector and the Archduke then decide whether he's guilty or not. The emperor can override the decision.

 Former Territories
- Alemania (Holyswissia) -
Liberated by the USA also during the Liberation of Holyswissia campaign-It was later reannexed back into Snowzerland in 2011.
- Batavia - Declared independance from Snowzerland in 2011. They decided that Snoss rule was unnecessary.
Lichenstien is a small island east of Snowzerland Island itself. It was colonized in 2008 by the Snoss and has been a Snoss possetion ever since. Lichenstien's official language is German, and all of the first settlers of Lichenstien were eather of Snoss, Osterrean, or Alemanian origin. Because of it's small size, Lichenstien is highly dependant on Snowzerland and Osterreach for manufactured goods, textiles, and technology. Lichenstien is mainly a farming community, and it's small villages and towns also have some small specialties like woodworking and Cream Soda production as well. It is a member of the German States like the motherland.

In 2009, Swiss no longer wanted to be a customer of the Governance. He wanted to hire electricians, not the P.O.P.E., because he tried to split the See and was labeled a heretic. Now, the country has its own Power Farm on the north part of the Island, making its own Electricity. The P.O.P.E. no longer has any power in the land because of this new system. That was, until Director Benny heard about it. He and Mayor McFlapp caused problems with Snowzerland's solar power and wind farms. The whole island was shrouded in mist and fog for months, without any sunlight or strong gusts.
Many angry citizens wanted refunds. Swiss Ninja had no choice but to call back the Governance. The Governance began persurcuting Snowzerland and the Gigabishops and MetroCERNS increased bills. Swiss Ninja had to create the Utilities Tax to pay off all the citizens tax. By the end of the month the bills were up by 7% in Snowzerland.
This infuriating action caused Swiss Ninja to secede Snowzerland from Governance control. (again, this time successfully) Thus, a new company, called the Telenacleship of Snowzerland, or ToS for short, became the national utilities company. The ToS decreased bill prices tremendously, and it's sucess brought many new customers. However, the Governance still has customers in Snowzerland, but not as many as the ToS. Now, in a desperate race to regain their customers, the Governance has lowered their prices dramatically as well to compete with the ToS.
In Snowzerland, most chain restaurants/cafes/hotels have free wifi, but non-chain restaurants/cafes/hotels can vary. Some very rural and poorer areas of Snowzerland may not have electricity, or even plumbing at all. (Nevertheless, the peasants who live in these areas still maintain themselves and keep in good condition. Usually, these poorer areas use candles for light, and use water wells, lakes, rivers, streams, or springs for water. Water used for drinking is filtered for health reasons in these areas. Other than that, most Snoss homes and buildings have electricity and water.
 Relationships with Other Nations/Provinces
- United States of Antarctica - Very poor. The USA is tired of SN not paying his loan back and SN wanted to conquer the USA. Their relations broke down completely in the GSWV, when the USA attempted to nuke Snowzerland.
- Liguria - Good. They are Allies.
- Slumolia - Poor. Snowzerland tried to occupy them and tried to destoy Slumolian Culture.
- TerraMount - EXTREMELY poor. TerraMount is sick of constant wars started by The Imperial Empire of Snowzerland. They are always in a cold war in between those wars and during those cold wars there is the occasional proxy war.
- MAI - Fair. MAI has trade with Snowzerland, but stated that it is not impressed that Swiss Ninja has conquered countries, even going as far as saying THEY should conquer Snowzerland if Swiss continues! Other than this argument, MAI praises Snowzerland from its environmental record to the beauty of the mountains.
- Waffleland - Fair. Snowzerland and Waffleland trade technologies with each other. Still, Waffleland has the slight upper hand as it has Humongous Insane Superweapon Missile, so any invasion on Waffleland is currently impossible unless if someone can find a way to safely destroy T.H.I.S. without blowing themselves up in the process.
- Valnordore - Mixed. The New Valnordorians, the ruling party of Valnordore, does trade with them and are alligned but dislikes their conquest of numerous small islands. The True Valnordorians, another party, doesn't take involvement in this arguement but does allow it's mercenaries such as Java Ghent to serve under Snowzerland. The Black Eye, the third party, supports Snowzerland's conquests and provides soldiers to aid them.
- Ed Island - Very poor. Tensions between Snowzerland and Ed Island have escalated in the past few years.
- East Pengolia - Poor. Monarchies and Marxist realms are natural enemies. East Pengolia has recently begun stockpiling weapons, but not for the Snoss (but the Snoss don't know that). This has led to tension, though, because the Snoss think they're arminh against them. The weapons are actually for West Pengolia.
- Maverick - EXTREMELY poor. Snowzerland has made several sneak attacks against little islands, leading to a bitter rivalry between the countries. Maverick is rumored to have begun development of weapons of mass destruction to stop this.
- Dorkugal - Poor. Ever since Malcur ran them over, the nerds have begun to be paranoid of every military power except the USA.
- New North Etana - Poor. Since Snowzerland has openly threatened Japaland at least once in the past few years, they have begun to be distrustful of the Snoss. Japaland ceded itself to NNE in 2009, fearing that the Snoss would roll over them.
- Japaland - EXTREMELY poor. Swiss Ninja has openly considered taking Japaland off the map, partially because of all the rednecks, and partially because they are an unbelivably industrial nation. They also scare him, becuase that technology is mixed with conservative, pro-war views from the rednecks, a sense of unity from the Asian aspect of the country, and a work ethic better than anything else because of both cultures combined. It's a good thung that Japaland is forbidden from having a military. In the 1910s, they had better weapons than the Naughtzee.
- Castilla - Very poor. Castilla claims that it was the "original" Snowzerland and both countries share a strong competitiveness. As much as Snowzerland dreams to Germanify Antarctica, Castilla wishes to Hispanify Antarctica.
- Yow Kingdom - Poor. Though the 2 countries hate the USA. As King Alexander the ruler of Yow Kingdom wishes to destroy the island and be the penguin to bring down the USA.
- Lisboagal- Decent. They are allies and trading partners, only because Snowzerland hates Dorkugal too.
- Rusca- Bad. The Ruscans and Snoss have nukes pointed at each other in fear that one will invade the other.
The Culture of the Snoss is slighly different in different provinces.
The Snoss penguin's food is very European Based. The Main Dish is bratwurst with mashed potatoes, saurkraut, ketchup, mustard, and some vegetables with possibly a biscuit. Many enjoy replacing the bratwurst with a hotdog for an equally delicious meal. Other meals could be Pasta, German Noodles, Lasanga, Salads, Chinese Food, and Sushi. The country banned pancakes after they annexed Slumalia, and continued the ban after the war so not to anger the TaliBEANs any further.
For Dessert, Penguins like to eat ice cream, chocolates, tarts, Strudel and Creamy Cakes. Pie is a rare, and is not eated commonly. They also eat small hard candies too. For drinks, penguins like Hot Chocolate, milk, tea, water, and coffee. Cream Soda is extremely popular, but it is not drinken often because Snoss laws have only limited the sales of Cream Soda to Restaurants and Bars. Few Penguins and puffles grow and make their own cream soda, but it is illegal.
Zurich is known for its fashion, and most penguins there are very avid to the latest styles. Hovever, some areas that are more rural and have more poverty tend to wear European peasant clothes.
Snowzerland's architecture is influenced off of Alemania's and Osterreach's. Typical Snoss houses and buildings tend to have timber framed buildings like the ones above, and usually have roofing made out of wooden shingles or (rarely) thatch, which is only seen in the countryside or in small towns.
These Penguins have the decent technology. They tend to be Computer Savvy; they also really like the IcePod. Television is as common as a house fly. SARP, a former Snoss Agency, was responsible for scientific Advances, until it was bought by the RDA, which is now the National Science Agency.
These luxuries came at a high price, though. The Governance continued to punish Swiss Ninja by charging higher fees in his country, and of course labelling him a heretic. Televisions had only the basic channels because of the steep prices, and Internet bandwidth speed was limited strongly. That all stopped when the ToS was founded, and it became the main utilities provider of the nation and it's colonies. The ToS is much cheaper than the governance, and the Snoss live in paradise with it to this day.
The lives and political views of the citizens of Snowzerland vary in many ways. Citizens at average wake up every day around 7:30 AM each week day morning, and 8:00 AM during the weekends. For the children, all schools start at 8:30 and end at 3:00. Adults usually attend work from 8:40 AM - 5:00 PM on average not counting overtime or night shifts. Breakfast is eaten around 7:30-8:00 AM, Lunch is eaten around 12:00-1:30 PM, Happy Hour, the time when restauraunts and taverns begin discounting Cream Soda, is from 4:00-5:00 PM except on Christmas and Swissmass, when it is all day. Dinner is around 5:30-7:00 PM. Chicks under 4 years old go to bed around 8:30, while the average time is around 9:30 PM. Adults usually go to bed around 11:30.
See Snoss Television for more Information.
Most Cantons in Snowzerland have their own individual newspaper, usually called "city denonym Zietung" for the German Provinces, with the Zurcher Zeitung being the most popular one. Snowzerland also has four news channels, Channel 1 (German Speaking Channel - for the Zurich, Luzern, and Sankt Moritz Provinces), Channel 2 (French Speaking Channel for the Geneva Province), Channel 3 (Italian Speaking Channel for Canton of Bellizona), and Channel 4 (English Speaking Channel mainly for Tourists and Immigrants)
The Economy of Snowzerland is divided into four sections:Agriculture, Services, INdustry, and Tourism.
Agriculture is a big part of Snowzerland Island's economy, since much of the land outside the cities are farmed and forested. Most Penguins inside the mountain range usually raise cows and focus mainly on Dairy products that include Milk, Cheese, Yogurt, and Butter. Within the mountain range is also where cabbage, lettuce, and carrots are grown as well. In the Bellizona Canton, Grain is the main cash crop of the Region.
Industry plays a key role in the prosperity of Snowzerland's military prowess. About 50% of factories on Snowzerland Island alone are known to be weapons and/or military vehicle producing factories, 30% deal with textile and clothing manufacturing, 15% deal with oil and metal refineries, plastic production, and the production of several chemicals, while 5% of industry deals with miscellaneous things, such as toy, domestic vehicle, or tool production.
Snowzerland focuses a lot on tourism, especially since Swiss Ninja wants his nation to look better than all the others. Public Transport like Airports, Buses, Taxies, and Trains are common on the island, and are available for everyone 24/7. Some Cruise Ships also make stops in Bellizona as well. Public Tours are also available but you must make reservations online. For now, Snowzerland remains open to the public to travel without the guidance of a government minder, but it is rumored that tourists are secretly monitored daily to make sure that they do not do anything to cripple the regime. Snowzerland's government offers relatively cheap guided tours for all tourists, though almost all foreigners give it poor reviews for being filled to the brim with pro-Swiss Ninja propaganda. Most Antarctic travel books advise visiting the country without any guided tours.
The Hesse, The former official Snoss Coin, is worth about 1.77 USA Pebbles. It is made out of 70% Nickel, 20% Copper, 5% Platinum, 2% Silver, and 3% of Mixed Metal Alloys. The 1 Hesse coin has a diameter of 3 Centemeters. Then one day, it was decided by the Snowzerland Council that Snowzerland switched it's currency to the Club Penguin Gold Coin to be in line with the rest of the AU, whom officially adopted the GC in 2005.
Interestingly enough, Snowzerland has political parties that are represented in the Snowzerland Council. ALL official political parties must be approved by Swiss Ninja if it is to exist. The party also must be Pro-Swiss Ninja, or else the party will be abolished and the leaders/represenstives/creators of the party will be excecuted. Nevertheless, there are small, secret Anti-Swiss Ninja party that are not known to the public. Here are a list of official and unofficial political parties listed by Popularity and Power.
 Swiss Ninja Imperialist Party
The most Popular Party in Snowzerland, the Swiss Ninja Imperialist Party supports Swiss Ninja's intentions of invading other countries and influencing them politically and culturally. The Imperialists are very, very patriotic. Imperialists support a strong national government. Most of the citizens who are part of this party are soldiers, police, government officials, ToS Workers, and other Snoss citizens who do not support the other parties.
 Swiss Ninja Green Party
The Swiss Ninja Green Party is the second most popular party in Snowzerland. Citizens who consist of this party are mostly farmers, tree huggers, and penguins who hated the Governance. The Swiss Ninja Green Party believes that Snowzerland should use alternative power sources to produce electricity. Party members are known for having solar panels on their roofs, which produce free electricity for the house, consideringly lowering their electricity bills. The Swiss Ninja Green Party also supports the conservation of wildlife and nature. The Green Party also supports agriculture, fishing, and tourism as Snowzerland's economy main focus.
 Swiss Ninja Economy Party
The Swiss Ninja Economy is the third most popular political party in Snowzerland. It's main focus is to make Snowzerland's main economy based on industry and services. In contrast to the Swiss Ninja Imperialist Party, they do not support the conquest of other countries because they believe that it is a waste of time, money, resources, and soldiers.
 Swiss Ninja Neutrality Party
The Swiss Ninja Neutrality Party is the least popular political party in Snowzerland. The main belief of the SN Neutrality Party is that Snowzerland should not invade other countries and that it should be a completely neutral country. They believe that these wars and conquests are preventing Snowzerland from reaching it's potential for being a popular and powerful nation. They still strongly support Swiss Ninja, though.
 United Front for the Liberation of Snowzerland Party (Unofficial)
This is a top secret, unofficial political party and future liberation army. The party, shortened to the acronym of PFLS, is very anti-Swiss Ninja. They already have a rag tag rebel army, and the party meets in secret in a hideout located behind a hotel in a village near Zurich. They meet at least twice a week as they complain about the lastest stupid actions of Swiss Ninja and plan his downfall.
