The Catatonic State of Cathamye is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kit Purr with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 6.486 billion Cats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cataplexy. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Feline economy, worth 864 trillion kronor a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,358 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and welfare recipients are milking the government for all they've got. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathamye's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is serenity.

Cathamye is ranked 2,265th in the world and 50th in 10000 Islands for Nicest Citizens, with 68.21 average smiles per day.
