There is certainly a lot of evidence (or maybe, "lack of evidence showing the opposite") to support this. I've always kind of drawn a parallel to Cape Suzette from TaleSpin
, which has a similar isolated feel (Megakat City doesn't have cliff guns, but most sensitive buildings/installations seem to have similar defenses).

And yeah, there's that. The only other populated areas we see outside of the city limits are Megakat Springs (an obvious Palm Springs pun) and Anakata Island (an obvious Catalina Island pun, though I don't know why they just didn't call it "Katalina Island"
The Megawar II references from The Ghost Pilot
implies there's a greater region in play...though it's entirely possible the only similarities to real world history are the name, and the details of the conflict could be entirely localized and internal.
The only thing we know for sure (and I have additional evidence to post of this) is that it's an all kat world. That is now canon

Thanks for the read! And, my apologies - I proofread that thing to death several years ago, and yet I glanced at it the other day and there's still too many typos.
