The United Socialist States of Fingertits is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Peter with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.853 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 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Fingertitsian economy, worth 959 trillion Golden Kappas a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,332 Golden Kappas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, and Peter's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. 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 169,694th in the world and 4th in HoH SiS for Fattest Citizens, with 9.31 Obesity Rate.
