Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.159 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The enormous but sluggish Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 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 94,626 labor credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. 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 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 92nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 93 on the Enoch Index.
