The Kingdom of Schnozzel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Boris with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 1.267 billion Schnozzelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nasion. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Schnozzelian economy, worth 105 trillion Punches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,008 Punches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Schnozzelian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and the justice of Schnozzel is considered superior to that of other nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schnozzel's national animal is the Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Schnozzel is ranked 157,215th in the world and 218th in Spiritus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
