The Democratic Republic of Cattopia is a micronation founded on the 2nd May, 2016.

Etymology

Cattopia is pronounced mainly either Cat-Topia or Cah-Toh-Pea, though Chancellor Liam Raymond prefers the latter.

History

Cattopia emerged after an argument between Liam Raymond and his mum on the 2nd of May on whether or not he could build cat shelves. Seeing as she said no, Liam declared independence and became the Democratic Republic of Cattopia. The first ever document was then created for Cattopia, declaring independence. Later that same day, the Flag of Cattopia was designed by Liam Raymond to be the national flag flown in Cattopia.

Culture

Cattopian culture is essentially the same as English culture, though a tradition of cat puns was started by a prominent member and has stuck since then. However, Chancellor Liam Raymond is very interested in developing a unique Cattopian culture independent from the English Culture.

Religion

Religion in Cattopia

Religion isn't really an important aspect within Cattopia though despite this a survey was conducted to determine the religions of the populous. Note that Atheist-Spiritual refers to any one who does not believe in a god though does believe in some other religious belief, for example reincarnation. This option was included due to two prominent citizens of Cattopia believing in reincarnation and past lives. Additionally, Cat Cult was included due to the lack of knowledge to what Cats believe in and so the two cat inhabitants were immediately added to the Cat Cult category.
