Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population5.197 billion



The Republic of Catierro is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.197 billion Catierroans 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toronto. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Catierroan economy, worth 815 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,846 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, sex changes are routinely performed at Catierro's hospitals, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catierro's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Catierro is ranked 748th in the world and 523rd in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 179 Valid Endorsements.
