The Cat of Cat047 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 1.368 billion Cat047ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cattery 047. The average income tax rate is 31.6%.
The very strong Cat047ian economy, worth 116 trillion Mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,305 Mice, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", large sections of Cat047 have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cat047's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
