The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.693 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 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,889 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 282,245 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government employees from Snoodum dominate international lumberjack competitions, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. 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 Flea, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Snoodism.

Snoodum is ranked 934th in the world and 27th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 69,075.27 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
