The - Kurgan

Population21.559 billion

CapitalNew York of the Quickening


The One of The - Kurgan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.559 billion - Kurganians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York of the Quickening. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The - Kurganian economy, worth 679 trillion swords a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,520 swords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the nation refuses to provide international aid, adultery has been made a capital offence, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The - Kurgan's national animal is the one, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The - Kurgan is ranked 173,881st in the world and 49th in Iran for Safest, scoring 26.14 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
