The United Realms of Kurtivia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Friedrich Wilhelm von Löningen with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 6.86 billion Kurtivians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torvin. The average income tax rate is 87.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kurtivian economy, worth 971 trillion Kurtivian Rubles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,662 Kurtivian Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, Friedrich Wilhelm von Löningen's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, people say chess victor Friedrich Wilhelm von Löningen can kill you with mind-bullets, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Kurtivia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of Kurtivia.

Kurtivia is ranked 17,422nd in the world and 1,000th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
