The People-State of Kulgatha is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vorn Hagen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.93 billion Kulgathans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorn. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kulgathan economy, worth 857 trillion narathems 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,677 narathems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, and gossip magazines have pictures of Vorn Hagen sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kulgatha's national animal is the house centipede, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Pietist Imperial Catholicism.

Kulgatha is ranked 163,878th in the world and 8,035th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.69 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
