The Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.068 billion Katudans 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royling. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 129 trillion Kantas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,374 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katuda's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abrahamisica.

Katuda is ranked 95,348th in the world and 2,584th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 129 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
