The Sanctuary of Finchin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Andromeda with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.362 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 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Finchinian economy, worth 100 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 73,583 Favours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, President Andromeda's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. 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 226,712th in the world and 8,486th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -9.38 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
