The Republic of Furbish Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Thomas Norup with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.817 billion Furbishmen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Administration, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Furbish economy, worth a remarkable 2,551 trillion Furbish dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 259,954 Furbish dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, the tenet of free speech is held dear, public toilets are famed for their rear entries, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Furbish Islands's national animal is the Furbish jungle cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Furby Island.

Furbish Islands is ranked 6,086th in the world and 5th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Highest Economic Output, with 2,551 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
