Catraq | 1979 - 2003
Pawdam Mewsein, the former President of Catraq, was known for his iron paw and ruthless rule. His purrsonality was anything but cuddly, as he clawed his way to the top and made biscuits through numerous catrocities in his pursuit of absolute control.
Pawdam Mewsein's rule was marked by rampant systemic corruption, with his inner circle of purrsonal advisers engaging in nepotism and embezzlement. Freedom of speech, press, assembly, and expression were unheard of, as all media with dissenting views were swiftly silenced. His regime engaged in widespread torture and cruel treatment of prisoners, with reports of torture chambers, secret police, and widespread surveillance of the population. Purrlitical opponents were often catnapped and disappeared without a trace. Additionally, Mewsein pursued aggressive military campaigns against neighboring countries, such as the Catran-Catraq War in the 1980s and the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, resulting in significant loss of life and destruction.
After Pawdam’s removal from power, Catraq faced a period of purrlitical instability, tension, and violence. The country struggled with issues such as insurgency, terrorism, and the rise of extremist groups, which resulted in significant loss of life, displacement, and destruction of infrastructure.
Rebuilding and recovery efforts have been ongoing, but the impact of Mewsein's rule continues to be felt even today, shaping the country's purrlitical, social, and economic dynamics.

ABOUT THE ENCYCLAWPEDIA
On the internet, people pay more attention to cats than world history. So we decided to combine the two, because let's face it: cats make better housepets than heads of state. Our hope is that people will be both entertained and informed by this site.
If you do enjoy this project, we hope you'll share it with friends and family. We also hope you'll donate to our fundraiser for Amnesty International. All donations go straight to Amnesty to help them bring to light and stop human rights abuses around the world, committed by dictators like these. Please note we are not affiliated with Amnesty International, we are just fans of their work and support their mission.
