The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.123 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,053 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 288,249 Flebs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Snoodum, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. 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 6,550th in the world and 362nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 466.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
