OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Snowcat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Master with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 26.035 billion Snowcatians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Snowcatian economy, worth a remarkable 6,126 trillion Angsts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,315 Angsts, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Snowcat is building an army to protect its overseas territories, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major 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 90,283rd in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
