The Carefully Watched Republic of Katitania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Great Overlord Kat with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.979 billion Katitanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Katitanian economy, worth 222 trillion Slashes a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,416 Slashes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, and environmental officials dismiss uncontrolled wildfires burning down major cities as nature taking its course. 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, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Katism.

Katitania is ranked 216,612th in the world and 757th in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
