The White Elephant of Katyuscha is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by nah with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.518 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of nah. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Katyuschan economy, worth 915 trillion nahs 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 121,794 nahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The nah 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 nah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nah.
