The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.755 billion Big Bad Booans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, 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 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 6,291 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 common. Average income is an amazing 426,413 Flamingoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Grand Moff shrugs in the face of growing inequalities, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Grand Moff to meetings with foreign heads of state, there is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, and citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office. 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 46,539th in the world and 2,290th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 43.26 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
