Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.725 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The large but stagnant Ratatasque economy, worth 188 trillion Labour 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 17,618 Labour Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, the government has been kicking out foreign corporations in a bid to grow enough food for the populace, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 210th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 144,972nd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -10 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
