The Federal Republic of Fennoscandia Union is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Anderson Gustus with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 947 million Fennoscandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 77.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Fennoscandian economy, worth 97.0 trillion Kolches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,441 Kolches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fennoscandia Union's national animal is the Eurasian Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fennoscandia Union is ranked 204,929th in the world and 147th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -101.7 on the Hayek Index.
