The People's Republic of Lolcatistan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ceiling Cat with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.984 billion Lolcats enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitteh City. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lolcatistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,934 trillion Cheezburgers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 293,901 Cheezburgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the Kitteh City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture, and the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Lolcatistan's mid-life crisis. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lolcatistan's national animal is the Kitteh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lolcat Bible.

Lolcatistan is ranked 243,932nd in the world and 7,552nd in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
