Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, digital currency, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.822 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fully Sponsored City. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth a remarkable 6,310 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 456,532 Flamingoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and many marriages go virtually unconsummated. 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 1,791st in the world and 38th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 2,314.70685192 Days.
