Kuhugstan is also the most influential micronation in the Spokane Sector.
The name "Kuhugstan" comes from the words "kuhug", the Kuhugi word for "sun", and the Indo-Iranian place name -stan". This name honors the local Spokane Native American tribe, whose tribal name means "People of the Sun."

The Republic of Kuhugstan succeeded Istoria and was founded on July 9, 2011. An election to choose a dictatorial leader was held on August 12 of the same year between Max Kasbar and Rascal of Kuhugstan, a cat belonging to Kasbar. Kasbar was elected to lead the country. On August 30, Kuhugstan transitioned into a semi-presidential republic. Kasbar became the prime minister and Rascal became the president. Presently, the Republic has renewed its focus on domestic affairs, moving away from the international sphere. After periods of near-inactivity and loss of interest, the Republic of Kuhugstan was declared defunct on August 16, 2012.
The Libertarian Socialist Party of Kuhugstan is the current governing party. The legislative body, called the National Assembly, is elected by the citizenry. The prime minister, who acts as the head of government, is then chosen by a vote of the representatives in the Assembly (In theory, that is). The candidate in second place in this vote becomes the President of Kuhugstan, a ceremonial head-of-state position. The Kuhugi government also administers law and order within national borders. The national police force is called the National Public Servants, which acts as more as a responsible vigilante group than a "bureaucratic" standing police force.
Currently, there are two Kuhugi political parties; one on the left of the political spectrum and the other on the right.

Kuhugstan has a humid continental climate (Köppen Dsb), a rare climate due to its elevation, and significant winter precipitation precluding a semi-arid climate classification. The area is typified by a very warm, arid climate during the summer months and a cold, somewhat snowy, and moist climate in the winter. Both summer and winter are the predominant seasons, as fall constitutes a rapid transition. On average, July and August are equally warm, and the coolest month is December. Daily temperature ranges are large during the summer, approaching, and often exceeding 30 °F (17 °C), and small during the winter, with a range just above 10 °F (6 °C). December, the coolest month, averages 27.2 °F (−2.7 °C), while July and August, which are equally warm, average 68.6 °F (20.3 °C). Because of Kuhugstan's location between the Cascade Mountains to the west and Rocky Mountains to the east and north, the country is protected from weather patterns experienced in other parts of the Pacific Northwest. The Cascade Mountains form a barrier to the easterly movement of moist and comparatively mild air from the Pacific Ocean in winter and cool air in summer. As a result of the modifying effect of the Cascade Mountains, Kuhugstan also has less than half the rainfall of Western Washington. The average annual precipitation in Kuhugstan is 17 inches (430 mm), whereas Western Washington receives 37 inches (940 mm) annually. The most precipitation occurs in December, and summer is the driest time of the year. The Rocky Mountains shield Kuhugstan from the winter season's cold air masses traveling southward across Canada, sparing the country from the worst effects of Arctic air in winter. Extremes range from 108 °F (42 °C) to −30 °F (−34 °C), but temperatures of more than 100 °F (38 °C) and less than −10 °F (−23 °C) are rare.
Kuhugi culture is, mostly, a mixture of American, British & Pacific Northwest cultures; with the American side french fries, most television & other things & the British side Doctor Who, Primeval, Monty Python's Flying Circus (Kuhugis also incorporate American, British & Pacific Northwest personalities); Kuhugi people also like Europeans more then Americans, since there are things which are too "right-winged" for them in America.
Most of the cuisine in Kuhugstan is nearly all unique. A few are:
- Rice & Meat (national dish)
- Mashed Potatoes
- French Fries (Chips)
- Baked Potatoes
- Tortilla "Cream-Cheese" Sandwich
Basketball & Sprint-running are very popular in Kuhugstan, & so is Calvinball, which they even have there own Calvinball team (Kuhugi Tigers). Computer gaming, online or offline, is popular during "free-times".
