The Torporine Kingdom of Finium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Esmereldo Esteban Spessartine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.688 billion Finians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsind. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Finite economy, worth a remarkable 5,506 trillion Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 253,885 Ingots, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,474,388 per year while the poor average 20,715, a ratio of 71.2 to 1.

The act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Finium's national animal is the Fae, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ditanery.

Finium is ranked 47,152nd in the world and 17th in The Forgotten Lands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,602.75 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
