The DeLeontologist of Ratateague is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.643 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 receive no funds. 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 8,337 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 385,212 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ratatekkers have replaced bears in a popular idiom, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and the RBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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 47,912th in the world and 5th in Ratateague for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,953.87 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
