Feline Goetland

Population18 million


The Republic of Feline Goetland is a tiny, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Feline Goetlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The thriving Feline Goetlandian economy, worth 1.32 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 73,571 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,420 per year while the poor average 15,007, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Feline Goetland's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Feline Goetland is ranked 38,103rd in the world and 1,117th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 77.7 Insults Per Minute.
