OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its enforced nudity. Its hard-nosed population of 13.319 billion 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 small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandbox. The average income tax rate is 3%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Gambling, and Soda Sales industries.

Abortions are routinely performed in Psychoticat's hospitals, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 14th in the Pacific and 1,449th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 67 Whatever.
