The Endless Fleet of Gattoartico is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Praetorianum Imperator Isaiah Lupares with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.406 billion Lupi di Mare are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HIMS Niflheim. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Un Lupo di Mare economy, worth 367 trillion kronor 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. 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 83,481 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gattoartico's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gattoartico is ranked 85,594th in the world and 153rd in Gay for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 101,605.33 Standard Monetary Units.
