The United Kingdom of Finnzil is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Finn I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its superstitious fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.759 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 Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67%. 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 religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives, GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol, the adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, and nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as Finnzil's House of Parliament. 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 691st in Europeia and 110,504th in the world for Safest, scoring -273.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
