The Renewed Republic of Cauteria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Council of Nine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The cynical population of 3.206 billion Cauterians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maltrion. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Cauterian economy, worth 154 trillion Cauterian Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,215 Cauterian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cauterians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cauteria's national animal is the Cauterian Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cauteria is ranked 115,480th in the world and 4,645th in Lazarus for Most Devout, with 11.22 Prayers Per Hour.
