The Carefully Watched Republic of Katitania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Great Overlord Kat with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.906 billion Katitanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pizzaland. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katitanian economy, worth 735 trillion Slashes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 149,831 Slashes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, newspapers print only headlines, Katitanians have replaced bears in a popular idiom, and school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katitania's national animal is the Porcupine and its national religion is Katism.

Katitania is ranked 262,030th in the world and 1,226th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -16.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
