The United Kingdom of Finnzil is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Finn I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.51 billion Finnzilis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Commerce, although Education and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finyo. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the world outside is only known of in folklore, spousal homicide rates have tripled in recent months, and Finnzil's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Europeia. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Finnzil's national animal is the Finnetaluna, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Finnism, and its currency is the Finnian Dollar.

Finnzil is ranked 671st in Europeia and 102,134th in the world for Best Weather, with -90 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
