The Socialist Republic of Furstia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Rafael Ilario with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.844 billion Furstians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Deseado. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Furstian economy, worth a remarkable 1,153 trillion Ligas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 106,340 Ligas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and Furstia's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Furstia's national animal is the African Bush Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Furstia is ranked 139,760th in the world and 50th in Geopolity for Highest Drug Use, scoring 15.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
