The Democratic Empire of Catsfern is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Henry Eden with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 7.721 billion Catsfernians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raven Rock. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Catsfernian economy, worth a remarkable 2,141 trillion Septims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 277,381 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes, fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is totally unknown. Catsfern's national animal is the Neko Girl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Imperial Pantheon.

Catsfern is ranked 148,349th in the world and 4th in RKS System for Most Authoritarian, with 510.16 milliStalins.
