The People's Republic of Ferte is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.362 billion Ferteans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken 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 94.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Fertean economy, worth a remarkable 1,162 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 112,217 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Judicial torture is outsourced overseas, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime is totally unknown. Ferte's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nonexistent.
