The People's Republic of Snurdly is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Tweedle with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.449 billion Snurdleñoes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bananaberry. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Snurdlyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,480 trillion Clams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 216,657 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Snurdly's national animal is the refrigerator, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Subgenius.

Snurdly is ranked 77,478th in the world and 2,852nd in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,663.63 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
