The Anean Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.149 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 327 trillion Kantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,317 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and the KBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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 246,343rd in the world and 9,568th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.11 weapons per person.
