The Pink Kingdom of Kotat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Riley with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.511 billion Kotatians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uhok Central. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kotatian economy, worth a remarkable 4,883 trillion Ko-tain credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 263,828 Ko-tain credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime is totally unknown. Kotat's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Agnostics.

Kotat is ranked 176th in the world and 1st in The Dumpster Dog Coalition for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,332.79 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
