The Republic of Curlyhoward is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 35.559 billion Curlyhowardians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Environment, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Curlyhowardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion Larries a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,652 Larries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and citizens are deeply regretting challenging the government to be honest about its intentions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Curlyhoward's national animal is the Moe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Curlyhoward is ranked 207,249th in the world and 8,343rd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -14.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
