The Republic of Basement Kitteh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lonemagpie with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 25.336 billion Basement Kittehians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basement Kitteh City. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Basement Kittehian economy, worth a remarkable 4,714 trillion cheezburgers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,063 cheezburgers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Basement Kitteh's national animal is the panzerkatze, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Basement Kitteh is ranked 2,310th in the world and 17th in Europeia for Highest Economic Output, with 4,714 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
