The Parliamentary Republic of Snofjogur is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Moderator Gudmund Nilsen with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.759 billion Snofjogurfolk are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anaborg. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Snofjogurish economy, worth 223 trillion Snofjogurish marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,110 Snofjogurish marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snofjogur's national animal is the arctic blanket octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Snofjogur is ranked 14,945th in the world and 123rd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,650.22 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
