The Republic of Curlyhoward is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.977 billion 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 30%, 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.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. 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 4,450th in the South Pacific and 116,494th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
