The Holy Catocracy of Catiania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Katrina with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.259 billion Cats enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 1,631 trillion Mice a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,171 Mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's biggest export is stupidity, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catiania's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felinism.

Catiania is ranked 35,005th in the world and 1,173rd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 71.76 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
