The name of the country comes from Proto-Kashisan *kaθʉθa "big" and *kʉk, meaning river.
In 623, a man named Tamengdeng (modern Kaatian Tamiring), an early convert to Zarasaism, united 5 Kaatian tribes, thus founding the Kaatian empire. He was later known as Vúniyikat (great leader in Kaatian) . In 845, the empire was conquered by Baláhak.
The current president is Nüring [surname], elected first in 2012 and currently serving his second term. The current government was established in 2002, after the overthrow of the old Shohuan-backed Sannist government.
Kaatkukia is divided into two divisions: Kaatkukia itself and Wamena.
Kaatkukia used to have good relations with Shohuan during the Sannist regime. The current government improved the relations with other neighboring states and Cerman.
Science and technology
There are two main ethnic groups in Kaatkukia: the Kaatians and the Wamenans. Some Voont people live in the northeastern part of the country, near the Amaian border.
There are two official languages in Kaatkukia, Western Kaatian and Wamenan, and another regional, Eastern Kaatian.
Kaatkukia is majority Zarasaism. During the Kuulist regime, theology was lightly phased out of schools, but this trend quickly reverted during the Sannist regime, which valued Zarasaism and traditional Kaatian and Wamenan culture.
