The Socialist Republic of Furstia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Rafael Ilario with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.644 billion Furstians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto Deseado. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Furstian economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 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 106,557 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 183,391st in the world and 130th in Geopolity for Most Pro-Market, scoring -78.89 on the Rand Index.
