The Cat Burglar of The Miscellany is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.708 billion The Miscellanyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Public Transport and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Miscellany City. The average income tax rate is 12%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Swamplands and bogs have been put under quarantine, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Miscellany's national animal is the kitty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the tickle.

The Miscellany is ranked 4th in Cat Burglars and 27,356th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.909 Stalins.
