The Cattery of The Big Bad Boo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Moff with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 19.972 billion Big Bad Booans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fully Sponsored City. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Booan economy, worth an astonishing 10,977 trillion Flamingoes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 549,658 Flamingoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of judges has tripled in recent months, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime is totally unknown. The Big Bad Boo's national animal is the Twisty Headed Glib, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Nightmarish Redux.

The Big Bad Boo is ranked 196,091st in the world and 8,577th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.77 Crimes Per Hour.
