The Holy State of Ferlik is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.281 billion Ferlikians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.1%.

The powerhouse Ferlikian economy, worth 89.3 trillion Gold Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 69,719 Gold Standards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,059 per year while the poor average 13,026, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

God took rock and roll from you, took rock and roll from everyone, newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government, oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys, and where your food came from is an unknowable mystery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Ferlik's national animal is the Wildebeest, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ferlik is ranked 144,530th in the world and 155th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.54 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
