The Empire of Kuriko is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Aelia Murena with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.399 billion Lenlyvitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lenlyvitian economy, worth 337 trillion Lens 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 32,411 Lens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, the police double as repo men, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuriko's national animal is the Lenlyvalk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kuriko is ranked 55th in the world and 1st in The Hole To Hide In for Most Influential, scoring 534,672 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
