Population1.013 billion


The Kingdom of Katamba is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.013 billion Katambans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katamban economy, worth 135 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,730 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, there's a hole in the heart of every Katamban city, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katamba's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Katamba is ranked 14,544th in the world and 650th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,704.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
