The Ideation of Kursibar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Big Wungle with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, feral children, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.405 billion Lukusibari hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Weezibar. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kursibari economy, worth a remarkable 1,660 trillion IDAMS a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 259,224 IDAMS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, there is something rotten in the state of Kursibar, and students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kursibar's national animal is the covenant man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is IDAM.

Kursibar is ranked 182,839th in the world and 108th in Conch Kingdom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.64 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
