The Perfidious Theocracy of Snorlaxia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Barbara the Barbarian with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.036 billion Snorlaxians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Branchland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Snorlaxian economy, worth a remarkable 8,537 trillion Felonies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 501,143 Felonies, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, the Snorlaxia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, and Snorlaxian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Snorlaxia's national animal is the Desi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is sonichuism.

Snorlaxia is ranked 161st in the world and 9th in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 995.19 on the Hayek Index.
