The Evil Petting Zoo of Deadcatistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Evilyn 6 with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.67 billion Deadcatistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megacity One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Deadcatistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,506 trillion tears of orphans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 287,575 tears of orphans, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

A video of Evilyn 6 wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Deadcatistan's national animal is the hippie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the timeless wisdom of Billy Mays.

Deadcatistan is ranked 58,605th in the world and 479th in 10000 Islands for Most Average, scoring 43.11 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
