The Cat of Cat046 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.539 billion Cat046ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 046. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.7%.
The all-consuming Cat046ian economy, worth 130 trillion Mice a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,924 Mice, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,016 per year while the poor average 21,360, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.
The nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Cat046ians, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat046's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
