The DeLeontologist of Ratateague is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.654 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, Healthcare, and Social Policy 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 8,346 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 385,468 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied flying squirrel, bike rage is all the rage, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. 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 230,508th in the world and 9th in Ratateague for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -76.76 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
