The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.821 billion Cat-herders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 629 trillion Feline Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 164,702 Feline Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Cat-Herders Unitedian mussels the biggest in Forest, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A President Catniss Mesteņero For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of President Catniss Mesteņero's supporters. Crime is totally unknown. 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 164,037th in the world and 298th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring -49.33 on the Rand Index.
