The Communes of Cataluna is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Outis with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.125 billion Catalunans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barcelona. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Catalunan economy, worth 55.3 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 49,191 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, Outis lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cataluna's national animal is the Leon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Gods No Masters.

Cataluna is ranked 16,617th in the world and 2nd in Philosopher Kingdom for Most Inclusive, scoring 146.78 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
