The Free Land of Kurzweil is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, absence of drug laws, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.438 billion Kurzweilians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Administration, with Education, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The powerhouse Kurzweilian economy, worth 208 trillion Kurus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,482 Kurus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 315,955 per year while the poor average 16,302, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown, many are questioning Leader wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kurzweil's national animal is the Sergiyu, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kurzweil is ranked 36,324th in the world and 1,086th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 73 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
