The Furry Federation is both a region on Nation States as well as a role-playing forum inspired by said region. The role playing aspect of the forum centers around many aspects of the nations run by furries, with some being representative of nations in the region of the Furry Federation on Nation States. However, since the forum's creation, some nations have opted to continue their Nation States nations and to continue only on the forum side of things.
The region on NationStates was originally founded by the nation of Shikeishuu who played Arctic Wolf as an alternative to the region of Furry which lacked an in game founder. This decision was seen as a good one as the lack of found left the previous region open to griefers and invaders. Having a founder allowed the new region to be a safe place for role playing activities. Arctic Wolf also set up the first offsite forum and was the primary administrator. Izixs, with his nation the Union of Tinis, was a moderator of the forum as well as the long time UN delegate in the NationStates region having served in such position over 2000 non-consequitive days.
The plots of the Furry Federation forum usually center around international politics but more recently have included extensive personal stories. The genre of the Furry Federation ranges widly between science fiction and fantasy depending on the mode of the nation, but the universe is fairly open and occasionally differences in local genre are attributed by those outside the nation in question as alternative applications of the basic ideas of reality. This allows a great deal of flexibility but has at times been hard to manage.
As of 2011, the Furry Federation forums have migrated off of the original forums, and to new ones administrated by Izixs and Archimage, with Miokalia as it's primary moderator, and is currently recruiting role-players.
As of 2013, most of the veteran playerbase has migrated to a new region and forum (The Commonwealth of Furry Peoples and the Furry Commonwealth Forums respectively), after several grievances with the administration went unresolved and the region 'Furry Federation' finally fell to raiders whilst Izixs was away, with little chance of reclamation by either residents or defenders. The regional irc on esper.net (#Furfed and #Shard) however, are still active, with most of the activity being relegated to the latter.
