The Commonwealth of Catalonia 2070 RP is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 354 million Catalans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcelona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.2%.

The sizeable but inefficient Catalan economy, worth 17.4 trillion gro▀marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,130 gro▀marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 163,524 per year while the poor average 10,999, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Builders across Catalonia 2070 RP are blocked up with orders for new public loos, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catalonia 2070 RP's national animal is the Pyreene-Rat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Catalonia 2070 RP is ranked 107,857th in the world and 16th in 2070 RP Region for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,801.95 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
