The Empire of Kuriko is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empress Aelia Murena with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.962 billion Lenlyvitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Lenlyvitian economy, worth 224 trillion Lens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 32,305 Lens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuriko's national animal is the Lenlyvalk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kuriko is ranked 65,910th in the world and 361st in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,779.4 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
