The Paradisio of Catalyse is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Staryi Ulyana Avii Dragomir with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.721 billion Catalysiis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catan. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Catalysean economy, worth a remarkable 3,174 trillion thels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 189,859 thels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A speech a day keeps climate change away, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, and freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Catalyse's national animal is the vortex drake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Strawberryism.

Catalyse is ranked 111,738th in the world and 4,448th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,381.12 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
