The SLUthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.44 billion Ratatekkers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth an astonishing 10,937 trillion labor credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 413,661 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Transgender and agender are on the education agenda, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and in a baffling press conference Leader proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime is totally unknown. Ratateague's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ratateague is ranked 304,778th in the world and 225th in The Social Liberal Union for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 12.22 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
