The Allied Huggable Fluffies of Kitabo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leland Gaunt with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.411 billion Kitaboans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kitaboan economy, worth a remarkable 3,177 trillion quads a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,028 quads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kitabo's national animal is the likito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kitabo is ranked 106,772nd in the world and 5,337th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
