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 keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.462 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, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelage. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lake of Furian economy, worth 359 trillion kind thoughts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,636 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 20,058th in the world and 17th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Best Weather, with 141 Meters Of Sunlight.
