The Federal Republic of Futrellia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Kaelyn Masters with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 15.779 billion Futrellians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyderius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Futrellian economy, worth a remarkable 1,467 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is 92,984 Federal Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, the government spends billions to protect Futrellia from a disaster that is one in a million, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Futrellia's national animal is the North Vardesian Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Futrellia is ranked 116,869th in the world and 9th in Elvarya for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,031.5 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
