The United Socialist States of Kurdislavic Algharbistan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed population of 495 million Kurdislavs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istangrad. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kurdislavic economy, worth 49.9 trillion Kurdislavic Rubles 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 100,852 Kurdislavic Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kurdislavic Algharbistan's national animal is the Kurdislavic Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kurdislavic Algharbistan is ranked 15,055th in the world and 217th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,896.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
