The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.084 billion Snoodians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,217 trillion Flebs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 239,429 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, gambling is outlawed, and tourists visiting the nation are warned not to drink local tap water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snoodum's national animal is the Flea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Snoodism.

Snoodum is ranked 1,231st in the world and 48th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 12,503.21 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
