The Republic of Kuvo is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.272 billion Kuvoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batavia. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuvoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,587 trillion guldens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,896 guldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens seem fixated on 105m x 45m rectangles, builders across Kuvo are blocked up with orders for new public loos, thousands of former pirates can be found peddling knockoff products in flea markets, and artists are renowned for their ability to make art pieces out of thin air. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuvo's national animal is the hawk-eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kuvo is ranked 2,884th in the world and 10th in The Western Isles for Most Secular, with 99.07 Atheism Rate.
