The HappyCat Signatory Peoples Union

Population279 million

AnimalBearded Lynx

The Federation of The HappyCat Signatory Peoples Union is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 279 million HappyCat Signatory Peoples Unionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The HappyCat Signatory Peoples Unionian economy, worth 9.82 trillion LuvsUs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,195 LuvsUs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time HappyCat Signatory Peoples Unionian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The HappyCat Signatory Peoples Union's national animal is the Bearded Lynx, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The HappyCat Signatory Peoples Union is ranked 46,869th in the world and 29th in Niamark for Lowest Crime Rates, with 69.99 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
