The Constitutional Monarchy of NewFinlandNation is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.008 billion Finns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Finnish economy, worth 245 trillion markkaa a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 122,373 markkaa, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. NewFinlandNation's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

NewFinlandNation is ranked 219,482nd in the world and 8,252nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -351.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
