The Cat of Cat104 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.997 billion Catianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 104. The average income tax rate is 51.5%.

The strong Catianian economy, worth 174 trillion Mice a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,666 Mice, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and Leader has just been declared ruler of Cat104 in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat104's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cat104 is ranked 39,589th in the world and 98th in The Allied Nations of Egalaria for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.96 percentage of bribes refused.
