The Armed Republic of Finnian Bastada is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Michael Collins with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.881 billion Finnian Bastadans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Belfast. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Finnian Bastadan economy, worth a remarkable 2,710 trillion Paddies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 143,568 Paddies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Finnian Bastada, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and military training in Finnian Bastada emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Finnian Bastada's national animal is the Pacific Grizzly Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Roman Catholic Church.

Finnian Bastada is ranked 45,428th in the world and 2nd in New Pacific Alliance for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.69 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
