The Catocracy of Catiania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Katrina with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.991 billion Cats are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 2,600 trillion mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,156 mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, Katrina is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catiania's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cat Worship.

Catiania is ranked 1,789th in the world and 45th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,447.9 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
