The Kingdom of Kuribo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bowser with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.404 billion Kuribans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowser's Castle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuriboan economy, worth a remarkable 5,162 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 296,633 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,726,099 per year while the poor average 3,342, a ratio of 815 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, a The East Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Kuribo #1 for number twos, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kuribo's national animal is the Piranha Plant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Peach.

Kuribo is ranked 1,011th in the world and 20th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 645.52 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
