Katan Sounad

Population1.749 billion


The Republic of Katan Sounad is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.749 billion Katan Sounadians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The very strong Katan Sounadian economy, worth 86.6 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 49,526 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 150,469 per year while the poor average 12,665, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

The only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, genetic researchers have been expelled, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies. Crime is moderate. Katan Sounad's national animal is the crocodile, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Katan Sounad is ranked 128,300th in the world and 79th in Middle Earth for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 734.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
