The Carefully Watched Republic of Katitania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Great Overlord Kat with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.517 billion Katitanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pizzaland. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katitanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,327 trillion Slashes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 155,914 Slashes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bungee jumpers frequently go splat, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, and the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in 10000 Islands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katitania's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Katism.

Katitania is ranked 15,728th in the world and 190th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 93.5 law-abiding acts per hour.
