Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand National Republic of Finium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President of the Republic Ripclaw with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.414 billion Finians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsind. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Finite economy, worth a remarkable 2,550 trillion Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 244,957 Ingots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,187,509 per year while the poor average 29,248, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Finium's national animal is the Fae, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Corinthite Apostolicism.

Finium is ranked 10th in The Forgotten Lands and 6,103rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 397 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
