Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Umhlaba Okhululekile of Cathorcea is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by UJohane Smith with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.807 billion Cathorceao 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mboka-Mokonzi. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kathyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion minizarēs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 181,472 minizarēs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, the comic book series 'UJohane Smith and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathorcea's national animal is the hayawan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dini.

Cathorcea is ranked 28,140th in the world and 42nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 245,427.46 Standard Monetary Units.
