The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.661 billion Cat-herders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 587 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 160,537 Feline Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', Cat-Herders United's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, Cat-Herders United's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and dining out often involves Cats on the plate no matter what you order. 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 201,554th in the world and 352nd in Forest for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
