The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.111 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. 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 4,231 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 418,515 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, and stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Snoodian humor gets. 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 181,559th in the world and 6,801st in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 65 Years.
