Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.667 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 98.8%.

The all-consuming Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,058 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 262,148 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, citizens must pay to enjoy Ratateague's pristine beaches, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Ratateague's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. 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 116th in the world and 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Best Weather, with 1,037 Meters Of Sunlight.
