The Kingdom of Cath Slar is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 590 million Cath Slarians 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, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cath Slarian economy, worth 71.7 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,603 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cath Slar's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cath Slar's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cath Slar is ranked 107,542nd in the world and 579th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,137.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
