Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Thingy of Katyuscha is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Him with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.755 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 Cityville. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Katyuschan economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Munzzes 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 125,266 Munzzes, 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 Whatever.

Katyuscha is ranked 26,234th in the world and 4th in Kotturheim for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,802.42 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
