Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Merry Festive Xmas Yulething of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.008 billion Elf 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Pole Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Elf Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,816 trillion gift-wrapped presents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 293,431 gift-wrapped presents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime is totally unknown. Ratateague's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ratateague is ranked 180,209th in the world and 262nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.42 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
