The Republic of Nekonian is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 112 million Nekonianians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nekonianian economy, worth 3.91 trillion Catnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 34,883 Catnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nekonian's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nekonian is ranked 142,539th in the world and 7,164th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 30.83 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
