The Divided Republic of FurbyDistrict is a massive, devout nation, ruled by High Furby with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.226 billion FurbyDistrictians 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 3rd in Free Zone and 100,932nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
