The Kingdom of Katamba is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.036 billion Katambans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katamban economy, worth 140 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,983 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

In court almost every witness is a hostile witness, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, Leader's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katamba's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Katamba is ranked 36,329th in the world and 1,559th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,387.32 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
