OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.429 billion Psychoticatians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 29%, 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.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, surveillance cameras are banned, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million furballs of property damage. 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 16th in the Pacific and 1,201st in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 231 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
