The SLUthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.113 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, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, 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 9,161 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, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 396,371 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and refugees from other nations are flocking to Ratateague's border. 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 34,208th in the world and 79th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,373.57 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
