The Republic of Furbish Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Thomas Norup with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.554 billion Furbishmen enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. The average income tax rate is 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Furbish economy, worth a remarkable 1,786 trillion Furbish dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 272,509 Furbish dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society, all recreational drugs are legal, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown. Furbish Islands's national animal is the Furbish jungle cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Furby Island.

Furbish Islands is ranked 2,071st in the world and 2nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Cultured, scoring 223 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
