The Imperial Deicracy of Finsternia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Iriel Apollyon with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.673 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 1,559 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 233,630 Auruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Lord Iriel Apollyon to meetings with foreign heads of state, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. 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 Nebula Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pantheon of the Primordial Eight.

Finsternia is ranked 154,983rd in the world and 8,324th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
