The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, genial nation, ruled by BY-ELECTION PENDING with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.518 billion Finchians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparrowfield. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Finchinian economy, worth 106 trillion Favours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 69,973 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They who do not work shall not eat, the government pours millions of Favours into rehabilitation programs annually, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy. Crime is totally unknown. Finchin's national animal is the Sleeping Cactus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Finchin is ranked 40,493rd in the world and 1,953rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.38 on the Human Development Index.
