The Free Land of Catalis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Phoenix Summer with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.603 billion Catalisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crescent City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Catalisian economy, worth 601 trillion Bells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is 91,055 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, Phoenix Summer's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catalis's national animal is the TurtleDuck, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Catalis is ranked 36,238th in the world and 1,211th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,427.71 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
