The Federal Republic of New Caterse is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mx Camille Gustav with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.124 billion Caterseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Port. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Catersean economy, worth 508 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,222 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and there's never enough space in space. Crime is totally unknown. New Caterse's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Caterse is ranked 265,813th in the world and 9,000th in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.58 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
