The Finnish Free State of Awesome Wolf is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Aino Paavola with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.285 billion Finns 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."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 27.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Finnish economy, worth 674 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 127,617 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Merriment is might when jesters come calling with puppets in the night, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Awesome Wolf's national animal is the Black Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Awesome Wolf is ranked 119,445th in the world and 18th in Selene for Most Influential, scoring 21 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
