The Quentibanch of Caterasia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Supreme President Chief Cate with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.243 billion Caterasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equicate. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The powerhouse Caterasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 trillion Marguerites 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 122,254 Marguerites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, Caterasian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Queen Supreme President Chief Cate, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caterasia's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism and Christianity.

Caterasia is ranked 199,713th in the world and 392nd in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
