The Empire of Yocat is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sphinx Σφίγξ with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.743 billion Yocats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ocicat. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cat economy, worth 334 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,451 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, every workday begins with group therapy, Sphinx Σφίγξ lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yocat's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is God.

Yocat is ranked 12,787th in the world and 813th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 4,945.89 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
