The Republic of Cathenna is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Benjamin Kim with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.847 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cathennan economy, worth 826 trillion drachmas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,310 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 203,252nd in the world and 23rd in CISB for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.56 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
