The NɐᴉլɐɹʇsnⱯ of Ktos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vladimir Putin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.616 billion Ktosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shrek's outhouse. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ktosian economy, worth 41.1 trillion Jives a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,723 Jives, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, Anime has been named as Ktos's national religion, Vladimir Putin has just been declared ruler of Ktos in an international press conference, and Ktos has designated Shrek's outhouse as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ktos's national animal is the Groovy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anime.

Ktos is ranked 123,477th in the world and 24th in Swedes for Most Devout, with 9.2 Prayers Per Hour.
