The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.441 billion Big Bad Booans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fully Sponsored City. The average income tax rate is 11.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 5,565 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 414,084 Flamingoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Grand Moff's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world, and there's never enough space in space. 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 1,861st in the world and 49th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,959.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
