The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Astria with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.718 billion Finchians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparrowfield. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Finchinian economy, worth 123 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 71,918 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Finchin's national animal is the Sleeping Cactus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Finchin is ranked 72,674th in the world and 1,939th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 298.25267022928 Days.
