The Republic of 2nd Katanga is a huge, safe nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 444 million Katangeses 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lubumbashi. The average income tax rate is 35.5%.

The very strong 2nd Katangan economy, worth 29.8 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 67,217 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and 2nd Katanga has designated Lubumbashi as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 2nd Katanga's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

2nd Katanga is ranked 114,624th in the world and 145th in Thaecia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 902.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
