The Republic of Natcatjojo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Natalie with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.748 billion Natcatjojoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elsity. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Natcatjojoan economy, worth 118 trillion Woolongs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,800 Woolongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Natcatjojo's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Natcatjojo is ranked 164,163rd in the world and 6,187th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
