The Democratic Republic of Kuremaya is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 428 million Kuremayans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuremaya City. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kuremayan economy, worth 39.6 trillion Alegias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,555 Alegias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Former polygamists always seem to have a huge number of visiting cousins, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Kuremayan pirates, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kuremaya's national animal is the Aqua Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kuremaya is ranked 32,614th in the world and 2nd in Allegiant Union for Most Developed, scoring 73.8 on the Human Development Index.
