The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, humorless population of 19.728 billion Big Bad Booans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fully Sponsored City. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth an astonishing 10,883 trillion Flamingoes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 551,685 Flamingoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime is totally unknown. The Big Bad Boo's national animal is the Twisty Headed Glib, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Nightmarish Redux.

The Big Bad Boo is ranked 126,069th in the world and 6,622nd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 15.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
