The Island Paradise of FiHami is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Puani Kokostali with an even hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 2.964 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 Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ha'Hani. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse FiHamian economy, worth 216 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 Basket Weaving. Average income is 73,124 Flamethrowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Fire Falcon, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers. 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 203,154th in the world and 7,755th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 28.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
