The Kingdom of Katamba is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.251 billion Katambans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Katamban economy, worth 175 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,614 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katamba's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
