The Imperial Deicracy of Finsternia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord Iriel Apollyon with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.141 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, although Healthcare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 1,907 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 234,253 Auruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, on-duty Air Finsternia flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, and convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes. 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 3,177th in the world and 174th in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 47.66 Average Smiles Per Day.
