The Oppressed Peoples of Thibor Ferenczy is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Father Ferenczy with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.277 billion Ferenczyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romesalem. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferenczyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,497 trillion silver coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 422,553 silver coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Ferenczyians any less frightened, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Father Ferenczy wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thibor Ferenczy's national animal is the griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Krislimish.

Thibor Ferenczy is ranked 200,603rd in the world and 116th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Politically Free, scoring 1.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
