Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Torpor Empire of Finium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President of the Republic Ripclaw with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.224 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, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsind. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Finite economy, worth a remarkable 3,046 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 249,210 Ingots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,199,438 per year while the poor average 30,169, a ratio of 39.8 to 1.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, and Hallsind is a police state during international summits. 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 712th in the world and 1st in The Forgotten Lands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
