The United Socialist States of Fingertits is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Peter with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.187 billion Fingertitsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Netscape. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Fingertitsian economy, worth 780 trillion Golden Kappas a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,284 Golden Kappas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of Peter holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fingertits's national animal is the FrankerZ, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fingertits is ranked 108,295th in the world and 3rd in HoH SiS for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,264.44 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
