The Exalted Government of Neatlir is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Cat population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.721 billion Neatlirians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.8%.

The very strong Neatlirian economy, worth 71.4 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 41,513 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 155,401 per year while the poor average 7,759, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

Exports of chewing gum are inexplicably falling, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Leader For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Leader's supporters. Crime is a problem. Neatlir's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Neatlir is ranked 132,710th in the world and 13th in Democratic Republic of Southern Africa for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.74 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
