The Christmas Zombie Paradise of FiHami is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Puani Kokostali with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, fear of technology, and national health service. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 3.975 billion Finixis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ha'Hani. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The FiHamian economy, worth 213 trillion Flamethrowers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,664 Flamethrowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Puani Kokostali has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FiHami's national animal is the Fire Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Finixi.

FiHami is ranked 241,318th in the world and 8,127th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -14.7 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
