“All hail God-Emperor Snudgskooge” God-Emperor Snudgskooge
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Power
Location: Terra Snooda
The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.661 billion Snoodians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
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 4,814 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 412,901 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Snoodian soldiers know how to create single mothers in more ways than one, women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets, being dead no longer has any benefits, and the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings". 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.
