The Empire of Kationdee is a tiny, orderly nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 18 million Kationdeeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kationdeean economy, worth 697 billion lire a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,767 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kationdee's national animal is the Red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kationdee is ranked 87,233rd in the world and 90th in Eientei Gensokyo for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 298.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
