The Corpse Grinder of The Black Cathedral is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 705 million Cathedrelians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivaretsk. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cathedrelian economy, worth 106 trillion Cathedrelian Roubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile 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 an impressive 150,649 Cathedrelian Roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Cathedrelian military, Leader now dresses in spandex to work (The Black Cathedral has found 2 easter eggs), and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Cathedral's national animal is the Kodiak, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Black Cathedral is ranked 160,743rd in the world and 8,185th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 8 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
