Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Peaceful Republic of Cato Minoria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mos Maiourum with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.853 billion Cato Minorians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utica. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cato Minorian economy, worth 260 trillion Catonios 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 impressive 140,491 Catonios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime is totally unknown. Cato Minoria's national animal is the Tirannosaurus rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cato Minoria is ranked 163,804th in the world and 8,760th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -20.2 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
