The Imperial Deicracy of Finsternia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Iriel Apollyon with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.306 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. 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 2,649 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 234,361 Auruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", it's been a banner year for local vexillology, anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, and politicians tend to favor bombastic speeches and kissing babies now that they've been banned from social media. 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 207,213th in the world and 7,353rd in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
