The DSA is starting to tire of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.397 billion Ratatekkers 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 5,121 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 332,618 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million labor credits of property damage, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. 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 169,467th in the world and 328th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -63.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
