The Catholic Republic of Great Kauthar is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Christ the King with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.394 billion Kauthans are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christark. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kauthan economy, worth 458 trillion Kauthan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 54,633 Kauthan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Great Kauthar to be bombproof, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Great Kauthar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Kauthar's national animal is the Grey Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Great Kauthar is ranked 114,964th in the world and 4,275th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,102.71 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
