It all makes sense now...
Yugoslavia's back baby...

How the hell did this happen?
Well...we don't actually know. Sure, there's factbooks and stuff, but they don't really matter because the owner of this account is a lazy, unproductive, indecisive loser who may or may not have a thing for half human hybrids, big mechs and even bigger ships.
Is it a reunited Yugoslavia in the 21st century? Is a rebel colony world in the far future? Who knows, who cares?
New Yugoslavia just is.

Ailurocracy is what will stop China, Sinostatism, China Wartime Cocktail Uber!Pandemic and China Nuclear Winter.
Welcome to the Nekostan-e Gharbi. Our ancestors were a group of genetically enhanced Israeli cats raised by two Iranian Jewish women, Rachel Davidi and Esther Moshel. We are a constitutional monarchy where a line of benevolent and powerless feline queens “guide” the citizens or more precisely are the subject of their constant gossiping.

Current Queen: Sarah IV (House of Moshel)
Current Prime Minister: Dr. Elisheva Cohen (she is fine with Elizabeth for non-Hebrew speakers) from Likud
Cats rule; dogs drool; Israel rocks; China sucks.
Abolish China and save lives.

Do the leaders have to be fully feline or can they be catboys/catgirls?

I think YOU have to prove that cats have some sort of self-determination to actually start an Aliurocracy.

Because the point of the ailurocracy is to make the net cost of ceremonial positions negative.

Has anyone mentioned Stubbs, a cat who was mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska?

This wouldn't be a problem with a bigger cat, but Stubbs was attacked by a dog and spent 9 days in hospital. You might want to consider Secret Cat Service protection if the position is higher than Mayor.

anyone who is sapient, considerate and exercises good sense, their physical form should not matter.
of course as far as i've heard, earth has yet to make contact with another world who's sapient population are feline in form.
presumably, when we do, most if not all of the leaders of that world's nations will of course be felliform.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

She is not happy that there are other animals in charge of places on earth ?

Also:

The Mayor’s duties include visiting with locals and out-of-town visitors, attending business grand openings and other town functions, being in the town’s two annual parades, and promoting Idyllwild.


This is evidence that an animal can indeed be perfectly suited to hold office. He is e.g. performing better than Ted Cruz.
