The Federal Republic of Kurabis is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.27 billion Kurabisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parducze. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kurabi economy, worth 202 trillion Kurabisian crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,203 Kurabisian crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and dining out often involves hamsters on the plate no matter what you order. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kurabis's national animal is the hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kurabis is ranked 180,734th in the world and 4,761st in the West Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 7.72 on the Hayek Index.
