The Republic of Kaufestan is a small, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 32 million Kaufis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.2%.

The strong Kaufistani economy, worth 2.29 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 71,702 lire, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, and Kaufestan City Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kaufestan's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kaufestan is ranked 18,189th in the world and 2nd in The Great North for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,927.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
