The Warrior Republic of Kathol Rift is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kayla Verdika with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.013 billion Kathols are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kathol economy, worth 272 trillion Chits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,489 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kathol Rift's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kandar Legends.

Kathol Rift is ranked 101,072nd in the world and 4,434th in the Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.97 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
