Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population7.807 billion



The Republic of Catierro is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.807 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catierro. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Catierroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 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 common. Average income is an impressive 162,636 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. 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 Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Catierro is ranked 8,600th in the world and 361st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,024.83 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
