The Republic of Curlyhoward is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.517 billion Curlyhowardians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Law & Order, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 34%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Curlyhoward's national animal is the Moe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Larry.

Curlyhoward is ranked 105th in the South Pacific and 5,037th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 36 on the Enoch Index.
