The Althing of Ratateague is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.821 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.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. 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 253rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 111,529th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26 on the Hayek Index.
