The Loh of Aenglaland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ishtar with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 20.834 billion Cattishes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 41.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cattish economy, worth a remarkable 4,436 trillion Golden CatŪs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,951 Golden CatŪs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown. Aenglaland's national animal is the Original Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Loh.

Aenglaland is ranked 39,307th in the world and 1,921st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,057.61 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
