The Republic of Katharsis is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 327 million Kathars 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 government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seogyeong. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.7%.

The thriving Kathartic economy, worth 27.4 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 83,915 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Katharsis's national animal is the Chollima, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Katharsis is ranked 28,533rd in the world and 859th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 172.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
