The Retired Delegate of Kuriko is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Kuriko with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.317 billion Lysandrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 27.7%.

The Kurikoan economy, worth 171 trillion Lincs a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 51,584 Lincs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and nose plugs are the latest Kurikoan fashion accessory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 160,407th in the world and 856th in 10000 Islands for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.67 Kickbacks Per Hour.
