The Pacifist Kingdom of Katuda is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Dimitri Nikoslav IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.228 billion Katudans 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royling. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Katudan economy, worth 158 trillion Kantas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,157 Kantas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays. Crime is totally unknown. Katuda's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abrahamisica.

Katuda is ranked 176,422nd in the world and 7,228th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
