The Kingdom of Kathia (Kathic: Daregon ka Kāthka) is a wealthy, developed nation in Western Aurora. It is bordered by the Kathic Sea to the south. To the north it is bordered by Grothbord, and to the south east, Thrace. Kathia consists of 5 regions, and 14 provinces, and a single autonomous city. Approximately 92 million people live within the borders of Kathia, of which a majority (89%) are ethnically Kathic, while the other 11% are from other various cultures and ethnicities. Kathia has been inhabited for thousands of years, but the people who would eventually become Kathia came from Grothbord. Various independent Kingdoms would eventually rule over what is now Kathia until around 50 BCE when they were subsequently attacked by the expansionist Elyrian Empire. Kathia was ruled by the Elyrian Empire until around 40 CE when several revolts in what is now central Kathia revolted and successfully broke away. The coastal areas remained securely under Elyrian control until The Calamity.

For several centuries, Kathia was dominated by fragmented kingdoms and duchies. The Duke of Corava inherited the Kingdom of Ivadia in 908 AD and renamed his new Kingdom after the former Elyrian name, Kathia. The new Kingdom would slowly grow by way of marriage and conquest to take over much of Kathia and southern Grothbord, and by alliance founded the Confederation with Grothic states. This system lasted until Kathia was defeated by Daeron in 1644. Eventually, Kathia was liberated after his death by Miral the Great, who would declare Kathia and Empire and consildate power and make the military a main institution in the nation. After losing a the War of Hijjmayan Independence, the Empire racked up a large amount of debt, and raised taxes on the peasantry. The irritated peasants revolted in 1786, and in 1788 the the Empire was over and the Republican forces took hold. After 2 decades of war, Kathia capitualted and Vaszare I was put into power. Kathia remained fairly peacful throughout the 19th century, and emerged victourious from the First World War. It saw a humiliating defeat to Thrace in the second World War, and a military government headed by Acathe ce Vera was established to free Kathia from Autoctratism.

Today, Kathia is a highly developed and urbanized nation with a GDP of 3.4 trillion, it remains one of the richest nations in the world. Kathia also has a high human development index, and its people are on average some of the most well off. Kathia is a leading member of the Auroran Community, as well a member of the United Nations Security Council. It also possess one of the largest military budgets in the world and is also recognized as a nuclear weapons possessing state, with around 700 warheads. Today, Kathia is characterized as a representative democracy, wherein the monarch serves in a ceremonial position. It can also be characterized by its 21 provinces, who are federated members of the kingdom.

The National Assembly is charged with making laws, while the Senate is tasked with reviewing and revising the law. Should a bill be revized by the senate, it is then sent to the National Assembly for review. If the bill is seen as unsatifactory to the Assembly, it is then sent to the Prime Minister who will either pass it in it's current form or veto the bill. And, notably, after World War Two, right wing extremest parties were banned by Charles de Rachau in 1946. Since then, the extreame right is mainly considered a fringe group.
