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. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.085 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass -- 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 25%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, New Kourt is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, New Kourt's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Gem Stone.
