The Federation of Katyr is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 695 million Katyrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Katyrian economy, worth 84.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 121,069 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 353,177 per year while the poor average 32,793, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katyr's national animal is the hawk, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Katyr is ranked 12,978th in the world and 331st in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 106.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
