The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.072 billion Psychoticatians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandbox. The average income tax rate is 26%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales industries.

The government has enacted freedom of information, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Psychoticat's national animal is the psychoticat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Meow, and its currency is the furball.

Psychoticat is ranked 29th in the Pacific and 1,863rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 694 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
