The People's Republic of Kitimat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 41.303 billion Kitimatians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, liberal, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kitimatian economy, worth a remarkable 7,427 trillion Victory Chits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 179,825 Victory Chits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 621,721 per year while the poor average 38,022, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

Euthanasia is legal, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the people of Kitimat are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kitimat's national animal is the Steelhead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kitimat is ranked 34,644th in the world and 5th in The New Meritocracy for Most Patriotic, with 25.54 flags saluted per person per day.
