Basement Kitteh

Population24.366 billion

CapitalBasement Kitteh City


The Republic of Basement Kitteh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lonemagpie with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 24.366 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, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basement Kitteh City. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Basement Kittehian economy, worth a remarkable 4,466 trillion cheezburgers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 183,314 cheezburgers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Basement Kitteh's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Basement Kitteh City, workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, and the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Basement Kitteh. 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 5,258th in the world and 24th in Europeia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 13,002.43 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
