The Catgirl in Space of The Random Thief is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Verin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.938 billion hot catgirls are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verinia. The average income tax rate is 34.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Xilo-Sylian economy, worth 484 trillion meows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,191 meows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, the mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Random Thief's national animal is the tuna, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
