The Confusingly Arousing Pack of Furry Things is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zzyzx Wolfe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.215 billion Furries are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfsburg. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Furry Thingsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,096 trillion commissions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 210,262 commissions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, nations that kill a Furry can expect a strongly worded letter, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Furry Things's national animal is the massive wuff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wuffism.

Furry Things is ranked 177,326th in the world and 6,060th in the Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.11 on the Rand Index.
