The Cat Burglar of The Miscellany is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.131 billion are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of 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 22%. A robust private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Gun ownership is compulsory, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. 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 16th in Cat Burglars and 113,737th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -6 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
