The Dictatorship of Snoefsnuif is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Snoefsnuif with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.803 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snoefsmurf. The average income tax rate is 79%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snoefsnuif's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Duivel.
