Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.404 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, 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,473 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 280,024 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 129,288th in the world and 182nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -4.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
