The Holy Empire of Devoted Snails is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical population of 25.158 billion Devoted Snailsians 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 minute, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Environment, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Devoted Snails City. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Devoted Snailsian economy, worth 111 trillion Godly Shells a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,449 Godly Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devoted Snails's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Blind Devotion.

Devoted Snails is ranked 3,525th in Balder and 113,435th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -16 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
