Cat Yoke

Population427 million


The Matriarchy of Cat Yoke is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The democratic population of 427 million Cat Yokeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Cat Yokean economy, worth 21.7 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,794 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cat Yoke's national animal is the panther.

Cat Yoke is ranked 67,271st in the world and 2,232nd in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 62.14 Years.
