Kaz Katiestan

Population930 million

CapitalThe Jade City

AnimalSparkling Platypus

The Empire of Kaz Katiestan is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 930 million Katiestanis 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 Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Jade City. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kaz Katiestanian economy, worth 93.0 trillion Platypuses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,948 Platypuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most Kaz Katiestanian video games are banned in other countries, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaz Katiestan's national animal is the Sparkling Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kaz Katiestan is ranked 16,399th in the world and 538th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 81,605.56 Standard Monetary Units.
