The United Socialist States of Fingertits is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Peter with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.445 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 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Fingertitsian economy, worth 615 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 common. Average income is 95,541 Golden Kappas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 163,381st in the world and 5th in HoH SiS for Most Cultured, scoring 53 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
