Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.185 billion Ratatekkers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,371 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 276,693 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, Ratateague's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 22,726th in the world and 108th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,348.23 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
