The Desert Town of Furnace Creek is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Devon Mathis with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 8.739 billion Furnace Creekians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Oasis At Death Valley. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Furnace Creekian economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 159,981 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Furnace Creek's national animal is the desert tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Death Valley.

Furnace Creek is ranked 13,023rd in the world and 5th in Death Valley for Most Secular, with 87.3 Atheism Rate.
