The Coadunate Member State of Ferret Civilization is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HappyBard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.585 billion Salmagundi live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Salmagundi economy, worth a remarkable 5,423 trillion Dations a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 430,956 Dations, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,826,569 per year while the poor average 25,728, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ferret Civilization's national animal is the Livestock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Theism.

Ferret Civilization is ranked 808th in the world and 1st in Weyard for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 11,884.3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
