Katiks Rack

Population1.1 billion

CapitalHuman City


The Republic of Katiks Rack is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.1 billion Rackians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Human City. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Katiks Rackian economy, worth 101 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 92,408 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, all recreational drugs are legal, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katiks Rack's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Katiks Rack is ranked 24,111th in the world and 1,203rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,436.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
