The Free Land of Kurzweil is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.96 billion Kurzweilians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Welfare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kurzweilian economy, worth 529 trillion Kurus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,694 Kurus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 684,499 per year while the poor average 14,337, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

Tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', companies balk at paying their workers, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kurzweil's national animal is the Sergiyu, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kurzweil is ranked 57,851st in the world and 1,361st in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,253.75 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
