“The civility of mankind is given by the state”

The Post-Imperial Federation of Finium is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Lord-Regent Hahn with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.917 billion Finians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsind. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, and government policy is dictated by Corinthite Apostolicism. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Finium's national animal is the Fae, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Corinthite Apostolicism, and its currency is the Bancor.
