North Catimestistrianes

Population3.673 billion



The United Socialist States of North Catimestistrianes is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ka-Fos with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.673 billion North Catimestistrianesians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catimé. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Catimestistrianesian economy, worth 518 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,090 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, treason is relative, third world countries are rich in "I Love Catimé" t-shirts, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Catimestistrianes's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

North Catimestistrianes is ranked 7,812th in the world and 230th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 113,792.83 Standard Monetary Units.
