The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Catman Dude with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.549 billion Psychoticatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sandbox. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psychoticatian economy, worth a remarkable 5,121 trillion furballs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 237,661 furballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the internet has been placed under government control, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Psychoticat's national animal is the psychoticat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Meow.

Psychoticat is ranked 59,329th in the world and 2,577th in the Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
