Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of FurbyDistrict is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Furby with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 10.783 billion Furbies are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Furbish economy, worth 815 trillion Gold Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 75,649 Gold Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FurbyDistrict's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Furby.

FurbyDistrict is ranked 37,910th in the world and 13th in Warzone Asia for Most Authoritarian, with 0.61 Stalins.
