The Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.011 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 121 trillion Kantas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,817 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 87,671st in the world and 3,452nd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 137,886 Standard Monetary Units.
