The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.32 billion Cat-herders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 857 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,257 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. 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 2,719th in the world and 72nd in Forest for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,966.25 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
