The Most Serene Republic of Catalibla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Elsa Schwarzhafen with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.595 billion Cataliblans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jenburg. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cataliblan economy, worth 154 trillion Swiss francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,570 Swiss francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, President Elsa Schwarzhafen has just been declared ruler of Catalibla in an international press conference, and Catalibla has designated Jenburg as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Catalibla's national animal is the dog.

Catalibla is ranked 45,412th in the world and 2,258th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 110 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
