Ferengi society revolves so heavily around economic interests that it has practically become a religion, with a "holy book" known as the Rules of Acquisition.  Social status depends primarily on wealth, which successful Ferengi display as ostentatiously as possible.  Gender also affects Ferengi social status; female Ferengi are not permitted to engage in business, earn profit, or even wear clothes.  There is a growing movement to lift restrictions on female economic participation, however.

The Ferengi government has never been clearly explained.  The chief executive is an individual with the title of Grand Nagus.  Little is known about the organization of their government or the selection of government officials, although some form of [[anarcho-capitalism]] seems likely, with the Grand Nagus acting like a CEO or Board Chairman for a corporate-style government.  The behavior of many of their representatives in dealings with other races suggests that corruption is rampant in their society.

Agents known as Liquidators exist to enforce certain rules.
  
 
At least some independent Ferengi starship captains carry the title "Daimon", but its significance is unclear.
