The Kingdom of Cath Slar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King William with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.43 billion Cath Slarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cath Slarian economy, worth 226 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,193 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. 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, and its national religion is Atheism.

Cath Slar is ranked 7,012th in the world and 106th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 102.82 law-abiding acts per hour.
