The Empire of Kurou is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.986 billion Kurouans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madril. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kurouan economy, worth a remarkable 2,124 trillion Credits a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 266,025 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial subjects have Kurouan culture shoved down their throats, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kurou's national animal is the Synarch, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kurou is ranked 168,865th in the world and 6th in Night Rise for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -20.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
