LeaderLeland Gaunt


The Allied Huggable Fluffies of Kitabo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leland Gaunt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.328 billion Kitaboans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kitaboan economy, worth a remarkable 3,296 trillion quads a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,909 quads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, Kitabo City Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and posters on 'Kitaboan Values' advise against being proud of Kitabo. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Kitabo's national animal is the likito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kitabo is ranked 207,280th in the world and 10,164th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 4.39 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
