The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Andromeda with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.35 billion Finchians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparrowfield. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Finchinian economy, worth 97.8 trillion Favours 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 72,459 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Finchinian pirates, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Finchin's national animal is the Sleeping Cactus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Finchin is ranked 151,115th in the world and 6,112th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 82,255 Standard Monetary Units.
