The Communes of Cataluna is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 760 million Catalunans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcelona. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Catalunan economy, worth 29.9 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,397 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, the children of Cataluna are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and territories have the right to secede if they aren't happy. Crime is totally unknown. Cataluna's national animal is the Leon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cataluna is ranked 159,509th in the world and 471st in Pacifica for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring zero on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
