Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Furballed Republic of Psychoticat is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Catman Dude with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 20.492 billion Psychoticatians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, 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 53.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psychoticatian economy, worth a remarkable 4,876 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 common. Average income is an amazing 237,963 furballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the weather in Sandbox is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 98,985th in the world and 3,852nd in the Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
