The Anarcho-Socialist Kingdom of Catlania is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 936 million Catlans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catlanburg. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Catlanian economy, worth 82.8 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,430 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, a government program is underway to revitalize Catlania's beaches, and nose plugs are the latest Catlanian fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catlania's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Catlania is ranked 226,762nd in the world and 1,127th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
