Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.83 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,156 trillion labor credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 266,780 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, Ratateague's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams. Crime is totally unknown. Ratateague's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ratateague is ranked 135,919th in the world and 111th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Authoritarian, with 0.09 Stalins.
