The Haze and Dreams of Cataryn is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-working, devout population of 2.629 billion Cataryns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.4%.

The thriving Catarynian economy, worth 155 trillion hungarian forints a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,979 hungarian forints, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, and wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cataryn's national animal is the goulash, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cataryn is ranked 266,336th in the world and 796th in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 7.34 Obesity Rate.
