The Watchfires of Catalon-1 is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its public floggings, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory vegetarianism. The cynical, devout population of 17.449 billion Catalonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Catalon-1ian economy, worth 858 trillion $$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,193 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catalon-1's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Catalon-1 is ranked 269,515th in the world and 1st in Northern Catalonia for Fattest Citizens, with 5.35 Obesity Rate.
