The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.702 billion Cat-herders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 594 trillion Feline Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,649 Feline Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, fat-shaming is now public policy, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", and people invite random old men into their homes to play with their kids. Crime is totally unknown. Cat-Herders United's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Feline Catolicism.

Cat-Herders United is ranked 201,127th in the world and 383rd in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.44 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
