The Republic of Cahtoa is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Alexanda Kernaghan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, devout population of 772 million Cahtoans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pogolea. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cahtoan economy, worth 70.0 trillion Tosslas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 90,624 Tosslas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Calvinball training often involves digging escape tunnels, Alexanda Kernaghan panders to nontraditional families, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Cahtoa flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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.

Cahtoa is ranked 17,276th in the world and 4th in Hiyamashu for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.94 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
