OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 14.809 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 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Book Publishing and Soda Sales.

Minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes. 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 4,103rd in the Pacific and 113,259th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -205 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
