Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hapori of Cathorcea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tangotango Uenaku with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.571 billion Cathorceao are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wahi. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kathyean economy, worth 798 trillion manas 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. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 174,684 manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax manas each year, students cut up leftover manas during Arts and Crafts, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathorcea's national animal is the hammerhead shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Haapa'oraa.

Cathorcea is ranked 40,469th in the world and 93rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 198,974.1 Standard Monetary Units.
