The Democratic-Monarchist Union of Catlin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by National Mayor with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.67 billion Catliners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klad-Van. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Catlinian economy, worth 284 trillion cats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 106,646 cats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catlin's national animal is the striped Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Catlin is ranked 28,659th in the world and 72nd in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 106,646.66 Standard Monetary Units.
