The Armed Republic of Citurse is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 840 million Citurseans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Citursean economy, worth 131 trillion Crosses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 156,501 Crosses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 639,712 per year while the poor average 25,348, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.

Auditors are gutting every governmental department, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Citurse's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Citurse is ranked 179,196th in the world and 9,685th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 5.06 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
