The Gran Marca Espanola of Catalpha is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by HRH Prince Felipe de Borbón with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.113 billion Catalphans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miramonte. The average income tax rate is 84%. A large private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, school uniforms are compulsory, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catalpha's national animal is the Spanish Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Occitan Euro.

Catalpha is ranked 28th in Occitania and 99,625th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
