The Empire of Kadict is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Xenon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.812 billion Kadictians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odins Temple. The average income tax rate is 35.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kadictian economy, worth 588 trillion Runes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,352 Runes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pieces of groundhog occasionally rain from the sky near the border, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, trespassers entering Emperor Xenon's office are immediately vaporized, and Kadict's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kadict's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nordic Paganism.

Kadict is ranked 30,754th in the world and 71st in Nordic Lands for Most Developed, scoring 76.58 on the Human Development Index.
