The People's Republic of Katosima is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Winston Niles Rumfoord with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.616 billion Katosimen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asagi. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Katosiman economy, worth a remarkable 1,669 trillion mullis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 193,781 mullis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, vehicular homicide by Katosiman ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, and Katosiman scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katosima's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Madoka.

Katosima is ranked 169,576th in the world and 362nd in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -29.5 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
