Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Torpor Empire of Finium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Esmereldo Esteban Spessartine with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.453 billion Finians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, 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 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Finite economy, worth a remarkable 3,363 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. Average income is an amazing 249,991 Ingots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,164,113 per year while the poor average 32,199, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, penal labor is a de facto death sentence, children are expected to carve their own toys, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. 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 158,587th in the world and 34th in The Forgotten Lands for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 11.61 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
