The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Catniss Mesteņero with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.833 billion Cat-herders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Pueblo Unido. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cat-Herders Unitedian economy, worth 626 trillion Feline Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 163,569 Feline Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Cat-Herders United's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Feline Catolicism.

Cat-Herders United is ranked 55,520th in the world and 112th in Forest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,492.78 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
