The Protectorate of Kot Unduk Dispatch Office is a large, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 79 million Kot Undukians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Kot Unduk Dispatch Officean economy, worth 2.31 trillion Unduk Won 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 29,302 Unduk Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kot Unduk Dispatch Office's national animal is the Pekin Duck, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kot Unduk Dispatch Office is ranked 219,198th in the world and 30th in The Southern Reach for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.12 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
