Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Althing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.236 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,902 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 294,804 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 76th in the world and 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 97.05 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
