Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Snowcat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Master with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 29.235 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 aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Snowcatian economy, worth a remarkable 7,083 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 242,296 Angsts, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. 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 49,203rd in the world and 8th in The Furry Federation for Largest Governments, scoring 18.73 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
