Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Umhlaba Okhululekile of Cathorcea is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by UJohane Smith with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.144 billion Cathorceao are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kathyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 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, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. 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 194,022 minizarēs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, the state funds the recreational drug habits of every citizen, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathorcea's national animal is the hayawan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dini.

Cathorcea is ranked 35,446th in the world and 80th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 130.73 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
