The Catocracy of Catiania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Katrina with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.762 billion Cats 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 2,158 trillion mice a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,481 mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Katrina's questionably sane new coalition partners, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catiania's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felinism.

Catiania is ranked 204,041st in the world and 7,995th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20.64 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
