The United States of Catlin is a huge, genial nation, ruled by National Mayor with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 909 million Catliners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klad-Van. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Catlinian economy, worth 91.8 trillion cats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,990 cats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, the CBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, tax returns detail how many games of slots each citizen will be able to play with their refund, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Catlin's national animal is the striped Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Catlin is ranked 11,009th in the world and 55th in Thaecia for Most Influential, scoring 3,365 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
