The Four Legged Masters of The Litterbox is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Samhain Bashir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.301 billion Littermates are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Claw. The average income tax rate is 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Litterlicious economy, worth 237 trillion tootsie rolls a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,519 tootsie rolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, a popular Litterlicious saying is 'wishing upon a fallen jet engine', and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime is totally unknown. The Litterbox's national animal is the cricket, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Feline Worship.

The Litterbox is ranked 117,930th in the world and 209th in Karma for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
