The Republic of Cuirpthe is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Michael Wilson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.077 billion Cuirptheans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ballinluska. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cuirpthean economy, worth a remarkable 1,771 trillion gaolds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,189 gaolds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,054,779 per year while the poor average 18,709, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Cuirpthean watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, and those who don't have a bean to spend don't know a bean about Brasilistanian coffee beans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cuirpthe's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alydianism.

Cuirpthe is ranked 68,078th in the world and 19th in Aeia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 74.61 Years.
