The Free Land of Catalis is a huge, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 850 million Catalisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Catalisian economy, worth 21.1 trillion Bells a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 24,859 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catalis's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
