Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The City State of New Kourt is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Casamir with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 5.683 billion New Kourtians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Kourt. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Kourtian economy, worth 477 trillion Gem Stones a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,012 Gem Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, King Casamir is the self-declared God of all New Kourt, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. New Kourt's national animal is the bird of paradise, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.

New Kourt is ranked 201st in 10000 Islands and 12,993rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 235 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
