The Blissful Sound of Purring is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.692 billion Purringians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Equality, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Feline Contentment. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, sex changes are routinely performed at Purring's hospitals, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones. Crime is totally unknown. Purring's national animal is the tabby cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the headbutt.

Purring is ranked 119th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 12,700th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 24 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
