The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.808 billion Firstariani are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaria. The average income tax rate is 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth a remarkable 9,198 trillion Crediti Firstarianis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 370,771 Crediti Firstarianis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, and motorbike jousters live young and die fast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firstaria's national animal is the Rondine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Osservatori della Notte.

Firstaria is ranked 189th in the world and 4th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 17,651.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
