|Faith||Cult of El Presidente|
The Military Junta of Kurnugia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by El Presidente with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.451 billion Kurnugians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haverno. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Kurnugian economy, worth 721 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 208,966 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
The nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for El Presidente's eyes only'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kurnugia's national animal is the Tucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of El Presidente.
