The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 2.087 billion Cat-herders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 250 trillion Feline Florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,901 Feline Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase President Catniss Mesteņero's majority, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and political cartoons depicting President Catniss Mesteņero's face on a Cat's buttocks are selling like hotcakes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat-Herders United's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Feline Catolicism.

Cat-Herders United is ranked 9,027th in the world and 66th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,580.66 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
