The Perfidious Theocracy of Snorlaxia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Barbara the Barbarian with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.897 billion Snorlaxians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government 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 an astonishing 12,134 trillion Felonies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 554,179 Felonies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, the Snorlaxia Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', Barbara the Barbarian's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires. Crime is totally unknown. 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 298th in the world and 7th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 53,075.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
