The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, humorless population of 17.294 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 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 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 8,450 trillion Flamingoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 488,654 Flamingoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 116,138th in the world and 6,418th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
