I fear that there isn't an existing star catalogue
with what you want.

The most up to date catalog is the Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues.
They only go out to about 160 light years.

I also estimate that a rectangular solid of dimensions
2000 ly x 400 ly x 400 ly would contain approximately
784,000 stars
