Location: Lands End

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Empathic Eye of Kathricore is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.343 billion Kaths have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olga Velikoye. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kath economy, worth 332 trillion Laris a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 99,465 Laris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the temple hierarchy have found that endorsements are even more lucrative than indulgences, thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors, and corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kathricore's national animal is the Crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is d'Krulius Thoroth.

Kathricore is ranked 73,762nd in the world and 58th in Lands End for Most Income Equality, scoring 49.7 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
