The Holy Catocracy of Catiania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Katrina with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.803 billion Cats enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katton. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cat economy, worth a remarkable 1,726 trillion Mice a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,137 Mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in The East Pacific are never on time for important appointments, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and the nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catiania's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Felinism.

Catiania is ranked 3,473rd in the world and 275th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 17,933 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
