The Technosocial Myrmecocracy of The Cathunters is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.007 billion kitty devourers 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of This Week's Capital. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The kitty eater economy, worth a remarkable 3,192 trillion catcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 102,962 catcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, sleeping on the job is recommended, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cathunters's national animal is the atomium, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cathunters is ranked 207,426th in the world and 104th in Eurth for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -16.78 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
