The Empire of Kuronami is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.915 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 80.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuronamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,269 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 160,423 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

A popular artist is claiming that a raw steak with a dog turd on it is a portrait of Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt, surveillance cameras are banned, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. 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 116,203rd in the world and 40th in Greater Dienstad for Safest, scoring 64.22 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
