The Republic of Cathenna is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Benjamin Kim with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.467 billion Cathennans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cathennan economy, worth 374 trillion drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,686 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nine out of ten citizens of Cathenna answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, organ donation is compulsory, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and most citizens in Cathenna are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathenna's national animal is the Cathennan striped-lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cathenna is ranked 159,349th in the world and 33rd in CISB for Most Devout, with 3.26 Prayers Per Hour.
