Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.208 billion Ratatekkers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken 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 99.3%.

The large but stagnant Ratatasque economy, worth 176 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 reasonably common. Average income is 17,309 Labour Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, the nation leads Democratic Socialist Assembly in per capita stalking, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 145th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 64,237th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
