The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Astria with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.769 billion Finchians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparrowfield. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Finchinian economy, worth 445 trillion Favours a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,181 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International tensions are high as Finchin threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Finchin's national animal is the Sprinting Cactus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Finchin is ranked 204,620th in the world and 10,441st in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
