OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Solar Republic of Catos is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Cato with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.36 billion Catosans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elysium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Catosan economy, worth a remarkable 2,632 trillion Silver Catons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 281,243 Silver Catons, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime is totally unknown. Catos's national animal is the Behemoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of the Machine God.

Catos is ranked 4,091st in the world and 9th in Free Market Federation for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 639,248 Standard Monetary Units.
