Population10.844 billion



The People's Republic of Ferte is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, fear of technology, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.844 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 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Fertean economy, worth a remarkable 1,219 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 112,455 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, morality classes are compulsory for all school students, and foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry. 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.

Ferte is ranked 134,337th in the world and 692nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,121.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
