The Sponge of Vladisvoks Cat is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vlad Cat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.899 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitty Basket. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Vladisvoks Cat's national animal is the Mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Silver Mouse.
