The Dominion of Soviet Felines is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Meow with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.427 billion Soviet Felinesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meowlingrad. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Felinesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,658 trillion Catnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 421,423 Catnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Felines's national animal is the Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Meowism.

Soviet Felines is ranked 106,375th in the world and 331st in The Communist Bloc for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,881.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
