|Leader||King Svarth÷fi II|
The Holy Kingdom of Katholskur is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Svarth÷fi II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.201 billion Katholskurans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ReykjavÝk. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Katholskuran economy, worth 561 trillion krˇnas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,966 krˇnas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, official medical guidelines insist that childbirth is 'almost totally painless', and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Katholskuran mussels the biggest in Catholic. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katholskur's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
