The United Jarldom of Feryx is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Markus Farlhardt with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.283 billion Feryxians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Public Transport receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Farther Hold. The average income tax rate is 36%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, the government seizes all major gold finds, and property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Feryx's national animal is the Blood Hound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the old gods, and its currency is the Denarii.

Feryx is ranked 1,357th in Balder and 39,080th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 3 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
