The Federal Republic of New Caterse is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 524 million Caterseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Port. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Catersean economy, worth 41.7 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 79,494 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. New Caterse's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Caterse is ranked 54,564th in the world and 1,919th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,503.11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
