The Sponge of Vladisvoks Cat is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vlad Cat with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.205 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitty Basket. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.3%.

The very strong Feline economy, worth 288 trillion Silver Mice a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 68,694 Silver Mice, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. 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 11th in Cat Burglars and 97,418th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -9 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
