The Commonwealth of SassyCats is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 87 million SassyCatsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish SassyCatsian economy, worth 1.65 trillion Moomas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 18,994 Moomas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SassyCats's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SassyCats is ranked 18,715th in the world and 87th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 80.55 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
