The Crown Union of Kouralia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Barynel Caeryn with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 20.694 billion Kouralians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kurton. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kouralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,730 trillion KŠtſyas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,621 KŠtſyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by Sir Barynel Caeryn after national disasters, Kouralians are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and conspiracy theorists allege Kurton's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kouralia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ăhrycreda.

Kouralia is ranked 256,205th in the world and 34th in Mystria for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -14.56 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
