The Republic of Saint Cat Grrryastan is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.576 billion Saint Cat Grrryastanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Welfare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Environment and Industry receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The very strong Saint Cat Grrryastanian economy, worth 182 trillion baht a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 51,020 baht, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 147,377 per year while the poor average 14,011, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, war criminals are given full state funerals, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, and fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Saint Cat Grrryastan's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Saint Cat Grrryastan is ranked 117,873rd in the world and 2nd in Dictatorial Paradise for Most Developed, scoring 55.4 on the Human Development Index.
