Katiks Rack

Population911 million

CapitalHuman City


The Republic of Katiks Rack is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 911 million Rackians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Human City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Katiks Rackian economy, worth 83.7 trillion Credits 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,828 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, untold millions of Credits are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katiks Rack's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Katiks Rack is ranked 6,133rd in the world and 288th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,801.29 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
