The Verboten of Thibor Ferenczy is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Father Ferenczy with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.196 billion Ferenczyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romesalem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferenczyian economy, worth a remarkable 6,122 trillion silver coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 502,009 silver coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, school uniforms are compulsory, and ritual mummification is making a comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thibor Ferenczy's national animal is the griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Krislimish.

Thibor Ferenczy is ranked 48,536th in the world and 19th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
