The Democratic Republic of Kungur is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jitel with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.001 billion Kungurians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lobanovo. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kungurian economy, worth 138 trillion rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,247 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, the government is trying to clean up all the rubbish that has washed up on the shores of Bigtopia and Marche Noire, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kungur's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kungur is ranked 21,613th in the world and 379th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 59.68 quips per hour.
