The Althing of Ratateague is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.022 billion Ratatekkers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Ratateague, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime is totally unknown. Ratateague's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Labour Credit.

Ratateague is ranked 5th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 1,354th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,010.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
