Kathay

The Kingdom of Kathay is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 234 million Kathians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Kathian economy, worth 7.31 trillion Kathian Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 31,238 Kathian Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kathay's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kathay is ranked 42,834th in the world and 2,245th in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,444.88 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
