The Childhood Toy of Mr Snuffles is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mommy with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.151 billion Mr Snufflesians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.1%.
The thriving Mr Snufflesian economy, worth 128 trillion Bickies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 24,858 Bickies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 70,170 per year while the poor average 7,049, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Mommy has just been declared ruler of Mr Snuffles in an international press conference, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and Mommy is the self-declared God of all Mr Snuffles. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Mr Snuffles's national animal is the Stuffed Giraffe and its national religion is Bear Of Cuddles.
