The DeLeontologist of Ratateague is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.845 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, 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 7,950 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 381,407 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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 12th in the world and 1st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 101.19 on the Human Development Index.
