The Anean Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.639 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, 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 231 trillion Kantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,454 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age', the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and Katudans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. 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 29,544th in the world and 1,491st in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.35 Bank.
