The Tiger of Desert Cat is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 19.254 billion Desert Catians 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The powerhouse Desert Catian economy, worth a remarkable 2,023 trillion Sands 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 105,113 Sands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", armed security details escort librarians to their homes, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desert Cat's national animal is the Sand Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Desert Cat is ranked 214,384th in the world and 9th in desert for Nicest Citizens, with 1.04 average smiles per day.
