The Holy State of Ferlik is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.654 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Standfest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The powerhouse Ferlikian economy, worth 259 trillion Egbets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 70,991 Egbets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 417,342 per year while the poor average 5,627, a ratio of 74.2 to 1.

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, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, and Ferlik has designated Standfest as its capital city. 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 77,178th in the world and 34th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Influential, scoring 216 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
