The Protectorate of Cat010 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its parental licensing program, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 910 million Cat010ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government is primarily concerned with Administration, although Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cat010ian economy, worth 43.8 trillion Mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,085 Mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, third world countries are rich in "I Love Cat010 City" t-shirts, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Cat010, and academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat010's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cat010 is ranked 86,693rd in the world and 1st in Coalition of Domestically Aligned States for Most Secular, with 17.42 Atheism Rate.
