The Kingdom of CopyCato is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by MEOWTRON with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate population of 5.349 billion CopyCatoans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meowtown. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CopyCatoan economy, worth 596 trillion pototoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,605 pototoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CopyCato's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pagan atheist.

CopyCato is ranked 57,977th in the world and 1,839th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 174.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
