The Cat of Cat072 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.361 billion Cat072ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 072. The average income tax rate is 29.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cat072ian economy, worth 68.9 trillion Mice a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,651 Mice, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and no one gossips with Leader during diplomatic summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat072's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cat072 is ranked 38,899th in the world and 4th in The Death Empire for Most Primitive, scoring 58.74 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
