The Cattery of Zinertia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by An actual cat with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.748 billion Zinertians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattertia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zinertian economy, worth a remarkable 3,314 trillion Zints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 197,905 Zints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zinertia's national animal is the CAT, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zinertia is ranked 515th in the world and 27th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 10,260.83 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
