The Holy Catocracy of Catiania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Katrina with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.416 billion Cats hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 1,661 trillion Mice a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,411 Mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and interest in globalism never flags. 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 Felinism.

Catiania is ranked 149,740th in the world and 5,427th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 34.99 Workforce Participation Rate.
