The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.124 billion Big Bad Booans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fully Sponsored City. The average income tax rate is 11.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 6,511 trillion Flamingoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 430,510 Flamingoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBBBB Governor goes house hunting, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime is totally unknown. The Big Bad Boo's national animal is the Twisty Headed Glib, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Nightmarish Redux.

The Big Bad Boo is ranked 527th in the world and 21st in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 11,934.92 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
