The Empire of Kurou is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ya boi with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.997 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madril. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kurouan economy, worth a remarkable 2,883 trillion Credits a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 288,483 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and diaper sales are up. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 162,466th in the world and 8th in Night Rise for Most Secular, with 15.71 Atheism Rate.
