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 free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.51 billion Cat-herders enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 177 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 common. Average income is an impressive 117,244 Feline Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 5,289th in the world and 79th in Forest for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 71.95 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
