LeaderKing Dimitri Nikoslav IV


The Anean Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.401 billion Katudans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royling. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 560 trillion Kantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,820 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King Dimitri Nikoslav IV's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, and the nation excels at displacement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katuda's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abrahamisica.

Katuda is ranked 265,491st in the world and 13,714th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.53 crimes per hour.
