The Democratic Republic of Catiels is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 167 million Catielsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Catielsian economy, worth 11.5 trillion Crocopounds 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 black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 68,931 Crocopounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, and government employees from Catiels dominate international lumberjack competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Catiels's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Catiels is ranked 118,084th in the world and 1,302nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 993.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
