The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.014 billion Snoodians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, 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 4,582 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 416,049 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleeping on the job is recommended, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Snoodum, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and military spending is on the increase. 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 1,062nd in the world and 41st in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,216.44 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
