The SLUthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.222 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 a remarkable 9,745 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 402,345 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, pizzerias must now display shrines to the Pizza God, and the diplomatic corps stinks. 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 254,363rd in the world and 166th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 3.53 Whatever.
