The Sponge of Vladisvoks Cat is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Vlad Cat with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.795 billion Cats are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitty Basket. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports industries.

The internet has been placed under government control, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, citizens are known to cast their votes by flipping a Silver Mouse, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 Pawsism, and its currency is the Silver Mouse.

Vladisvoks Cat is ranked 18th in Cat Burglars and 53,557th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
