The Husk of Fire Eaters of Last Hope is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sergeant Master at Arms Ignis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 4.07 billion Fire Eaters 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonfire City. The average income tax rate is 53.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Fire Eaters of Last Hopean economy, worth 107 trillion embers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 26,473 embers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Fire Eaters of Last Hopean nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fire Eaters of Last Hope's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of Embers.

Fire Eaters of Last Hope is ranked 39,437th in the world and 138th in The Black Hawks for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.85 Bank.
