The Cat of Cat049 is a massive, genial nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 3.993 billion Cat049ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 049. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.4%.

The thriving Cat049ian economy, worth 350 trillion Mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 87,766 Mice, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, Harry Potter books are banned, Leader is worshipped as a god, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat049's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cat049 is ranked 53,609th in the world and 1st in Floridia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 89.62 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
