The United Socialist States of Katyunon is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 390 million Katyunonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marxgrad. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Katyunonian economy, worth 25.8 trillion Klars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 66,114 Klars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, interest in globalism never flags, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katyunon's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Katyunon is ranked 173,125th in the world and 7,532nd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.82 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
