Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Althing of Ratateague is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.277 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 99.6%.

The large but stagnant Ratatasque economy, worth 155 trillion Labour Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,710 Labour Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Ratateague's border. 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 2nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 274th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 169 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
