The Republic of Kuranei is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lingxieu with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 28.056 billion Kuraneians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Spirituality, with Industry, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhongchen. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kuraneian economy, worth a remarkable 3,641 trillion steel coins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,795 steel coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, many believe that Lingxieu's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Kuranei's national animal is the Barn owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Kuranei is ranked 18,901st in the world and 884th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 129,795.8 Standard Monetary Units.
