The Free Land of The Ferret Lands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The High Chief Ferret with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 5.625 billion Ferrets are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aavak City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferret economy, worth a remarkable 1,212 trillion Cacaos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 215,590 Cacaos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ferret Lands's national animal is the Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nahuatl.

The Ferret Lands is ranked 2,075th in the world and 48th in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.2 Effective Tax Rate.
