The Republic of Kathlenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.323 billion Kathlenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kathlenian economy, worth 143 trillion Konds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,321 Konds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Autocrats are persona non grata, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kathlenia's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kathlenia is ranked 208,497th in the world and 4,401st in the West Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 48,730 Standard Monetary Units.
