The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by BY-ELECTION PENDING with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.541 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 107 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 112,689th in the world and 4,713th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,391.92 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
