Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Deicracy of Finsternia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Yrral Crystallia with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.698 billion Finsternians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Celestia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Finsternian economy, worth a remarkable 1,311 trillion Auruses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 230,252 Auruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Finsternia's national animal is the Dark Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pantheon of the Primordial Eight.

Finsternia is ranked 94,185th in the world and 5,782nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 58.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
