Population4.189 billion

LeaderSupreme Kat


The Empire of Katikstan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Kat with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.189 billion Katikstanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meowland. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Katikstanian economy, worth 290 trillion Katnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 69,444 Katnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, autocrats are persona non grata, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katikstan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Katikstan is ranked 31,978th in the world and 989th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 46.59 quips per hour.
