The Anean Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.681 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royling. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 607 trillion Kantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,940 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Royling" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 253,297th in the world and 10,843rd in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -16.41 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
