Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Romantic Sob of Katyuscha is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Zach Condon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.565 billion Katyuschans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nantes. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Katyuschan economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 trillion Loves a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 124,939 Loves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Beasty is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Katyuscha Blood Tithe, a recent law has banned homes from having any more than one wheel, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katyuscha's national animal is the Beasty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Romance.

Katyuscha is ranked 3rd in Kotturheim and 3,204th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,267.022 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
