OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 14.454 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 31%, 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.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. 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 3,940th in the Pacific and 111,246th in the world for Best Weather, with -699 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
