Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Snowcat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Master with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 30.716 billion Snowcatians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Social Policy and Spirituality not funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Snowcatian economy, worth a remarkable 7,487 trillion Angsts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,776 Angsts, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Companies are turning to trained Salmon for their most menial jobs, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, and the new foreign policy is why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Snowcat's national animal is the Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Snowcat is ranked 124,616th in the world and 10th in The Furry Federation for Most Income Equality, scoring 17.23 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
