The DeLeontologist of Ratateague is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.26 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 are ignored. 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 8,120 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 381,980 labor credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, moonshine has made a resurgence, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going 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 218,563rd in the world and 9th in Ratateague for Most Secular, with 1.03 Atheism Rate.
