The Torporine Kingdom of Finium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Esmereldo Esteban Spessartine with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.313 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallsind. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Finite economy, worth a remarkable 4,799 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 notable. Average income is an amazing 248,534 Ingots, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 872,043 per year while the poor average 51,383, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Hunters often become the hunted, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", and toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam". 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 Corinthite Apostolicism.

Finium is ranked 153,952nd in the world and 26th in The Forgotten Lands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -41.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
