Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Snowcat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 28.273 billion Snowcatians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Snowcatian economy, worth a remarkable 6,863 trillion Angsts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 242,761 Angsts, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the tenet of free speech is held dear, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Snowcat's national animal is the Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Snowcat is ranked 6th in The Furry Federation and 11,545th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
