The Holy Empire of Snoodum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Snudgskooge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.181 billion Snoodians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. 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 4,262 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 418,698 Flebs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, Snoodians have been enjoying a recent boost in civil rights as the government continues to clamp down on emigration, and the SBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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 609th in the world and 25th in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 418,698.29 Standard Monetary Units.
