The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.475 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 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 290,741 Flebs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Snoodians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures. 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 4,561st in the world and 228th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 123.89 Quips Per Hour.
