The Warrior Republic of Kathol Rift is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kayla Verdika with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2 billion Kathols are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kathol economy, worth 270 trillion Chits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,215 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kathol Rift's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kandar Legends.

Kathol Rift is ranked 18,146th in the world and 450th in the Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 17,295.54 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
