The Republic of Kirur is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by K458 with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.743 billion Kirurians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sana. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kirurian economy, worth 98.7 trillion Foroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 35,980 Foroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

K458's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kirur's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of personality.

Kirur is ranked 43,594th in the world and 8th in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 695.24 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
