Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sponge of Vladisvoks Cat is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Vlad Cat with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.326 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."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitty Basket. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.4%.

The strong Feline economy, worth 344 trillion Silver Mice a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 64,745 Silver Mice, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Vladisvoks Cat, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vladisvoks Cat's national animal is the Mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pawsism.

Vladisvoks Cat is ranked 6th in Cat Burglars and 105,725th in the world for Best Weather, with -42 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
