The Divided Republic of FurbyDistrict is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Furby with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate population of 3.623 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and mandatory daycare is provided by the government. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FurbyDistrict's national animal is the Furby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Secularism, and its currency is the Imperial Credit.

FurbyDistrict is ranked 16th in The Allied States Of The Campbell Nation and 116,119th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
