The Quentibanch of Caterasia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Supreme President Chief Cate with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.916 billion Caterasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equicate. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The powerhouse Caterasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,834 trillion Marguerites a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,021 Marguerites, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, Queen Supreme President Chief Cate's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, it's all quiet on the western front, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caterasia's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is whatever you want.

Caterasia is ranked 85,210th in the world and 223rd in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 141,331 Standard Monetary Units.
