In the CAT checkpoint you can renounce the allegiance to nation borders and gender borders, chauvinism, patriotism, and fascism. You declare that these concepts don’t define the true existence of the individual and are not a marker for human value.

The Catharas from the Teocratic Republic Of Gaia have observed that the checkpoint can be a traumatic experience for many people. Current immigration bans, and discrimination due to place of birth, race, ethnicity, gender and religion take place at checkpoints.

The Cathara Autonomous Territory and its rebels, bring this hut from the Theocratic Republic of Gaia, to offer the CAT stateless citizenship to inhabitants of this world.
