The Commonwealth of Greater Catarapania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Michael K Davis with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.573 billion Greater Catarapanians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Catarapania City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Catarapanian economy, worth 205 trillion Kilogram Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,924 Kilogram Sterlings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,888 per year while the poor average 19,758, a ratio of 28.2 to 1.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Catarapania's national animal is the Southwestern Duck-Faced Cantaloupe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Catarapania is ranked 5,797th in the world and 339th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 557,888.21 Standard Monetary Units.
