The Republic of Cahtoa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandrov Kernaghan with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.84 billion Cahtoans 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogolea. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cahtoan economy, worth 338 trillion Tosslas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,080 Tosslas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, Cahtoan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cahtoa's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cahtoa is ranked 13,340th in the world and 2nd in Hiyamashu for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 8,097.45 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
