Population3.947 billion


The Republic of Kathlenia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.947 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Kathlenian economy, worth 150 trillion Konds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,006 Konds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. 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 95,920th in the world and 1,749th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.01 Bank.
