Cathy Myschittland

Population971 million


The Empire of Cathy Myschittland is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 971 million Cathy Myschittlandians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.7%.

The strong Cathy Myschittlandian economy, worth 81.1 trillion schitts 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 83,534 schitts, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cathy Myschittland's national animal is the blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cathy Myschittland is ranked 232,566th in the world and 9,665th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 47.75 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
