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 notable for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 19.97 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 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 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psychoticatian economy, worth a remarkable 4,678 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 234,278 furballs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Large areas of Psychoticat are not accessible by the public, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, and glamping Psychoticatians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. 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 72,055th in the world and 3,497th in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 73 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
