The Republic of Kuruzubek is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Durantist with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 4.983 billion Kuruzians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durantgrad. The average income tax rate is 72.5%.

The powerhouse Kuruzubekian economy, worth 450 trillion RSDS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 90,334 RSDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Military training in Kuruzubek emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuruzubek's national animal is the Corswall bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kuruzubek is ranked 133,449th in the world and 3rd in The Red Stripe Trading Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 50.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
