The Natural Union of Fringillidae is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Carduelinae with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, lack of airports, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.293 billion Fringillidaeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrrhula. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.3%.

The strong Fringillidaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,529 trillion finches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 164,545 finches, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 523,259 per year while the poor average 39,396, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, the nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, and expectant parents view twins with equal parts joy and suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Fringillidae's national animal is the chaffinch, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Fringilla.

Fringillidae is ranked 14,206th in the world and 40th in Middle Earth for Most Stationary, with 1,550.31513279768 days.
