The Matriarchy of Kitsunetown is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Runefox with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.983 billion Kitsune 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 relatively small, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamamo. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kitsunetownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,611 trillion Inaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 230,812 Inaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All animals are equal but some are more equal than others, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kitsunetown's national animal is the nine-tailed fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kitsunetown is ranked 212,539th in the world and 6,614th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -22.46 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
