The Catocracy of Catiania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Katrina with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.718 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 2,502 trillion mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 196,803 mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catiania's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felinism.

Catiania is ranked 225,744th in the world and 8,636th in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
