The Communal State of Curseword is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader Tea with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.407 billion Cursewordians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beiton. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cursewordian economy, worth 187 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,524 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader Tea's bedroom, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown. Curseword's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Curseword is ranked 15,404th in the world and 894th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 73.08 quips per hour.
