The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, disturbing lack of elderly people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.994 billion Snoodians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 4,957 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 413,342 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Snoodum has found 3 easter eggs). 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 Horned Mukaboo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Snoodism.

Snoodum is ranked 229,938th in the world and 4th in Terra Snooda for Most Inclusive, scoring 6.13 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
