The Empire of Kuriko is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Aelia Murena with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.262 billion Lenlyvitians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lenlyvitian economy, worth 209 trillion Lens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 39,865 Lens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, gossip magazines have pictures of Empress Aelia Murena sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and helicopter parenting is on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuriko's national animal is the Lenlyvalk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kuriko is ranked 27,045th in the world and 207th in 10000 Islands for Most Stationary, with 610.20966502112 Days.
