Cath Slar

Population2.811 billion

LeaderKing William


The Kingdom of Cath Slar is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King William with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 2.811 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowerstone. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cath Slarian economy, worth 602 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 214,216 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, the only science is political science, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cath Slar's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cath Slar is ranked 267,254th in the world and 1,230th in Europe for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.46 crimes per hour.
