The Falthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.57 billion Ratatekkers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holtmímir. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 7,291 trillion labor credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 372,574 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Holtmímir for fear of causing a fuss. Crime is totally unknown. Ratateague's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ratateague is ranked 154,637th in the world and 226th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Pro-Market, scoring -80.67 on the Rand Index.
