The Empire of Kuronami is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.658 billion Kuronamians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caloris. The average income tax rate is 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuronamian economy, worth 854 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,076 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Kuronami flights to avoid the pay lavatories, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuronami's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kuronami is ranked 153,168th in the world and 47th in Greater Dienstad for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -18 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
