LeaderSupreme Kat


The Empire of Katikstan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Kat with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.695 billion Katikstanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meowland. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Katikstanian economy, worth 108 trillion Katnips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 64,030 Katnips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brasilistan has been announced as the nation's newest colony, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and the comic book series 'Supreme Kat and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katikstan's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Katikstan is ranked 223,179th in the world and 7,363rd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
