The Community of Katitania is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 495 million 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 large, 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 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Katitanian economy, worth 45.3 trillion Slashes a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,527 Slashes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. 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.

Katitania is ranked 4,809th in the world and 24th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring 127.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
