The Democratic Republic of Caterama is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Shiro The VII with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, rampant corporate plagiarism, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.174 billion Cateranian's are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karama. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cateranian economy, worth 592 trillion Cateranian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,541 Cateranian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 568,116 per year while the poor average 47,537, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, gun regulations are so strict even staple guns and hot glue guns are illegal, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caterama's national animal is the Caterama Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Caterama Catholic.

Caterama is ranked 27,067th in the world and 650th in the Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 52.04 quips per hour.
