The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.903 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%, 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.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, citizens select which government department gets their income tax furballs each year, skateparks can be found in every city, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. 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 3,424th in the Pacific and 109,197th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -30 on the Enoch Index.
