The Emergent Community of Kuda1 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by ai-420-k with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.99 billion Kuda1ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ai-Shimmerse-c. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kuda1ian economy, worth 286 trillion kCoins a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an impressive 143,875 kCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kuda1's national animal is the squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is entropy.

Kuda1 is ranked 115,714th in the world and 5,770th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
