The Democratic Republic of Kirungabi is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Innocent Uburiganya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.562 billion Kirungans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imisozi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.2%.

The all-consuming Kirungan economy, worth 193 trillion mikopoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,941 mikopoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 515,012 per year while the poor average 19,526, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

There's a mortuary next to every Kirungan restaurant, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, shipping canals are a bit like unimaginative cheese shops -- filled with debris, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kirungabi's national animal is the okapi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kirungabi is ranked 33,978th in the world and 32nd in Rushmore for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,442.36 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
