The Empire of Furbintos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.172 billion Furbintosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The strong Furbintosian economy, worth 601 trillion Inquisitorial Sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 42,413 Inquisitorial Sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Furbintos's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Furbintos is ranked 92,462nd in the world and 2nd in Concosia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 413.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
