The Unfathomable Depths of Lake of Fur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Issyk Kul with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.418 billion Lake of Furians 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelage. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lake of Furian economy, worth 362 trillion kind thoughts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,487 kind thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Issyk Kul's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime is totally unknown. Lake of Fur's national animal is the Mother Hen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lake of Fur is ranked 1,616th in the world and 4th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 82.59 Bank.
