The Federal Republic of New Caterse is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers.

The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 86,086 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
