The United Provinces of The Furbish Islands is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 677 million Furbishmen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Furby City. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Furbish economy, worth 60.5 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,386 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications. Crime is totally unknown. The Furbish Islands's national animal is the Furbish jungle cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Furbish Islands is ranked 228,772nd in the world and 114th in The League for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
