The Chiefdom Matriarchy of FiHami is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Finix Fi'Shi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 2.529 billion FiHamians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ha'Hani. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse FiHamian economy, worth 183 trillion Flamethrowers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 72,551 Flamethrowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Fire Falcons into functioning members of society, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and Finix Fi'Shi tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FiHami's national animal is the Fire Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Finixi.

FiHami is ranked 128,652nd in the world and 5,300th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 613.77 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
