The Commonwealth of Feinlin is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 566 million Feinlinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reinhart. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Feinlinian economy, worth 61.2 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,077 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Reinhart's playgrounds, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and no one gossips with Leader during diplomatic summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Feinlin's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Feinlin is ranked 25,913th in the world and 336th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,850.98 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
