The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 21.136 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 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth an astonishing 11,607 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 549,171 Flamingoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, The Grand Moff is called 'Patches' at international summits, and professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials. 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 9,644th in the world and 409th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,342.38 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
