The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.012 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,429 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 303,217 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, and the fate of the world literally rests on God-Emperor Snudgskooge's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 721st in the world and 38th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 1,845 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
