The People's Republic of Ferte is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.926 billion Ferteans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villalobos. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fertean economy, worth 882 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,379 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory for actors to exit stage left, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, and Leader has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferte's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nonexistent.

Ferte is ranked 1,916th in the world and 37th in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,404.42 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
