The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 24.609 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 8.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth a remarkable 9,161 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 common. Average income is an amazing 372,299 Crediti Firstarianis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, Overlord Daniel Mercury can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, war vets look after war animals, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. 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 158th in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 47,204.66 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
