The Rogue Nation of Finchington is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.963 billion Testsubjects hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reeseville. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Finchingtonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 trillion reblogs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,008 reblogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime is totally unknown. Finchington's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Finchington is ranked 14,477th in the world and 812th in Osiris for Most Cultured, scoring 94 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
