The Kitty God of Kerlodia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaz with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.164 billion Kerlodi 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Deep Undergound's Cat Tree. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlodi economy, worth 553 trillion Headpats a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,027 Headpats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, skateparks can be found in every city, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kerlodia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Acceptance.

Kerlodia is ranked 3,885th in the world and 128th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,117.13 Tourists Per Hour.
