The Cat of Cat043 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 4.233 billion Cat043ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 043. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat043ian economy, worth 341 trillion Mice a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,733 Mice, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat043's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Cat043 is ranked 182,327th in the world and 2nd in abundant for Most Influential, scoring 37 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
