The People's Republic of Catinerooon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Rocemenade with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 2.477 billion Catinerooonians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pinnapajoos. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Catinerooonian economy, worth 155 trillion Horoshoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 62,698 Horoshoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Catinerooon' is a smash hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catinerooon's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Strict Atheism.

Catinerooon is ranked 28,390th in the world and 1st in Communist Cats Club for Largest Governments, scoring 22.87 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
