The Free Land of The Ferret Lands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The High Chief Ferret with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 7.502 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aavak City. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferret economy, worth a remarkable 1,668 trillion Cacaos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 222,419 Cacaos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, commemoration of the Great the Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself, and ample hospital parking is half-filled by the luxury cars of hospital managers. 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 232,900th in the world and 6,057th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.09 Weapons Per Person.
