The Merchant Emirate of New Caitarea is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.858 billion New Caitari are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Administration, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of QŠterinsburg. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Caitarean economy, worth a remarkable 3,506 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 511,371 marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and Caitarean-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Caitarea's national animal is the canary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

New Caitarea is ranked 203,900th in the world and 7,972nd in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.33 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
