The Republic of Furbish Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Thomas Norup with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.821 billion Furbishmen enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. The average income tax rate is 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Furbish economy, worth a remarkable 1,924 trillion Furbish dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 282,214 Furbish dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, vaccinations are mandatory, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. 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 16,901st in the world and 15th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Secular, with 59.45 Atheism Rate.
