LeaderKing Dimitri Nikoslav IV


The Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.074 billion Katudans 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royling. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 130 trillion Kantas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,916 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katuda's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abrahamisica.

Katuda is ranked 232,143rd in the world and 8,710th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -318.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
