The Rogue Nation of Catistania is a large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 79 million Catistanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.

The strong Catistanian economy, worth 4.70 trillion Palladium claws a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,505 Palladium claws, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, and children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catistania's national animal is the Birman cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Catistania is ranked 152,593rd in the world and 7,357th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
