The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.664 billion Snoodians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snudgskooge's palace. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Snoodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,573 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 277,892 Flebs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 43,252nd in the world and 2,408th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,266.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
