The Free Land of Revolutionay Catalonia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 724 million Revolutionary Catalonians 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, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Revolutionary Catalonian economy, worth 47.4 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 65,461 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Revolutionary Catalonians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, rice shortages have risen after paddy fields were drained to combat malaria, and bungee jumpers frequently go splat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Revolutionay Catalonia's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Revolutionay Catalonia is ranked 141,872nd in the world and 119th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
