The Ferocious Cat Empire of Diabolical Felines is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Asbo with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.654 billion Diabolical Felinesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Diabolical Felinesian economy, worth 534 trillion Loaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,782 Loaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diabolical Felines's national animal is the Sinister Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Diabolical Felines is ranked 25,674th in the world and 46th in Canada for Most Developed, scoring 78.34 on the Human Development Index.
