The Endless Kitten Occupation of Silver Kittens is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.207 billion Silver Kittens are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Silver Kittensian economy, worth 131 trillion yarns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 31,253 yarns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, a major religion has been named as Silver Kittens's national religion, Leader has just been declared ruler of Silver Kittens in an international press conference, and millions of devastated 7-year-olds are denied astronaut and ballerina training. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Silver Kittens's national animal is the silvercat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
