The Republic of Catarra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Miquel Badia with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.735 billion Catarrans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcelona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Catarran economy, worth a remarkable 2,015 trillion Catarran Francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,730 Catarran Francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown. Catarra's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is catholicism.

Catarra is ranked 233,258th in the world and 5th in The ACSN for Most Primitive, scoring -333.67 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
