The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate, humorless population of 16 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 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 24.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 7,282 trillion Flamingoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 455,125 Flamingoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and the new biography of The Grand Moff is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb". Crime is totally unknown. The Big Bad Boo's national animal is the Twisty Headed Glib, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Nightmarish Redux.

The Big Bad Boo is ranked 52,232nd in the world and 3,067th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 98.28 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
