The Empire of Kufein-Balbony is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 389 million Kufei-Balbonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kufei-Balbonian economy, worth 22.5 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 57,818 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, the military has quashed a recent coup attempt, and the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kufein-Balbony's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kufein-Balbony is ranked 94,967th in the world and 5,094th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 65.05 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
