The SLUthing of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.618 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 8,843 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 390,983 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Ratateague, hospitals in Ratateague are too busy serving the needs of The Social Liberal Union to see Ratatekkers, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 28,088th in the world and 29th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,415.74 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
