The Althing of Ratateague is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.988 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.

The government funds large training centres to turn flying squirrels into functioning members of society, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, religious education is a new government priority, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. 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 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 114th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 387 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
