The SLUthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.697 billion Ratatekkers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 8,889 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 391,639 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ratatekkers submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. 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 321st in the world and 2nd in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Governments, scoring 80.09 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
