The Devils Decadence of CATSOC is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Demon Overlord Ivan Adramalech with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.284 billion citizens 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivans Playground. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Callectian economy, worth 71.2 trillion strands of Ivan hairs 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, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. 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 31,177 strands of Ivan hairs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, the new intercity submarine SSN Souls Of The Executed Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers, and escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CATSOC's national animal is the souls of the executed, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ivanism.

CATSOC is ranked 264,871st in the world and 6,498th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -21.21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
