The United Socialist States of Katyunon is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Samston Whitehall with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.756 billion Katyunions enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katyunite. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katyunonian economy, worth 493 trillion Klars 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,809 Klars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katyunon's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Katyunon is ranked 791st in the world and 24th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 97.7 percentage of bribes refused.
