OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.662 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 30%, 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 an international reputation for compassion, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, Max Barry is this year's Miss Psychoticat, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 4,080th in the Pacific and 105,316th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
