The People's Republic of Katosima is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Winston Niles Rumfoord with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.092 billion Katosimen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Katosiman economy, worth a remarkable 2,154 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 194,244 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 206,598th in the world and 458th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
