The People's Republic of Snurdly is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hiram Tweedle with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.306 billion Snurdleñoes enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Snurdlyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,965 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 211,176 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Snurdly's hospitals, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. 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 3,503rd in the world and 142nd in Balder for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 80.94 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
