The League of Kurha is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ruwa V Zhenrhan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.965 billion Kiths hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackfang. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kurha economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 trillion Aureas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 182,238 Aureas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Kurha Desert, Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kurha's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Ancestral Principles.

Kurha is ranked 41,436th in the world and 1,107th in Lazarus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,241.97 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
