The Fantastical Floral Forest of Ferndum is a massive, genial nation, ruled by A Human-Shaped Shrub with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.901 billion Ferndumians 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Very Large Fern. The average income tax rate is 40.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ferndumian economy, worth 35.5 trillion Ferns 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. 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 18,669 Ferns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, A Human-Shaped Shrub has just been declared ruler of Ferndum in an international press conference, and Proper Gardening has been named as Ferndum's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ferndum's national animal is the Caterpillar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Proper Gardening.

Ferndum is ranked 76,944th in the world and 34th in Shinka for Most Armed, with 0.45 Weapons Per Person.
