The City State of New Kourt is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Casamir with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.908 billion New Kourtians 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, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Kourt. The average income tax rate is 34%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, discarded pennies litter the streets, and new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Kourt's national animal is the bird of paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Gem Stone.

New Kourt is ranked 534th in Lazarus and 21,474th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 88 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
