The Empire of Yocat is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sphinx Σφίγξ with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, devout population of 3.522 billion Yocats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ocicat. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cat economy, worth 322 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,461 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Half King of Maxtopia' exhibit is the least popular amongst museum-goers, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yocat's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is God.

Yocat is ranked 23,587th in the world and 799th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 67.1 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
