The United Kingdom of Catrela is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Sofia II with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.847 billion Catrelans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vellerano. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Catrelan economy, worth 271 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,135 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Catrelan Cottontail Rabbit', awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. Crime is totally unknown. Catrela's national animal is the catrelan cottontail rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Catrela is ranked 717th in the world and 498th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 177 Valid Endorsements.
