The Carmine Feline of Occidius is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Nox with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.214 billion Cats have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Tower. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cattish economy, worth a remarkable 2,976 trillion mice a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 172,890 mice, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, Nox can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead, a nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, and sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Occidius's national animal is the Grump, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Occidius is ranked 225,499th in the world and 5,320th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 36 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
