The United Provinces of The Furbish Islands is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Thomas Norup with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 863 million Furbishmen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Furbish economy, worth 81.0 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,834 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, Prime Minister Thomas Norup's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Furbish Islands's national animal is the Furbish jungle cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Furbish Islands is ranked 72,413th in the world and 66th in The League for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,189.06 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
