The Vengeful Ferret God of Sredni Vashtar is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Sredni Vashtar with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.624 billion Ferrets are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferret economy, worth 869 trillion Chronicles of Clovis 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. 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 an impressive 113,992 Chronicles of Clovis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, women no longer need to pepper conversations with incessant references to fictitious husbands, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sredni Vashtar's national animal is the Ferret, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Ferret God Sredni Vashtar.

Sredni Vashtar is ranked 18,754th in the world and 1st in Foshan Mars Colony for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,275.68 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
