The Catochristoferson WA Puppet of Cato2 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dude Ravioli with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.148 billion Lawless Criminals 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a Trailer Park. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lawless Criminal economy, worth 199 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. 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 48,193 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, and nine out of ten citizens of Cato2 answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cato2's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Devil Worshipping.

Cato2 is ranked 10,655th in the world and 104th in Europeia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.39 percentage of bribes refused.
