The Allied States of Kursibar is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 311 million Lukusibari are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuruk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kursibari economy, worth 28.0 trillion kusigs a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 90,027 kusigs, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The number of judges has tripled in recent months, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon", and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kursibar's national animal is the gecko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kursibar is ranked 199,046th in the world and 342nd in Conch Kingdom for Most Pacifist, with 19.99 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
