The Free Land of Kurkiana is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rafael Akush with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.752 billion Kurks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayutti. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kurk economy, worth 609 trillion SCA Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,327 SCA Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rafael Akush's personal home is one of South Central Atlantic's most notorious party destinations, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, baiting is a national sport, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kurkiana's national animal is the Kurkian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mitarramar.

Kurkiana is ranked 159,476th in the world and 3rd in South Central Atlantic for Most Devout, with 3.18 Prayers Per Hour.
