Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.024 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,288 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 273,517 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism. 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 8,510th in the world and 9th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,578.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
