The Empire of Kuronami is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.345 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caloris. The average income tax rate is 73.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuronamian economy, worth 789 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,758 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, citizens must have a license to operate a computer, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and many friends and relatives of Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 166,954th in the world and 71st in Greater Dienstad for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
