The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.902 billion Firstariani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaria. The average income tax rate is 12.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth an astonishing 10,792 trillion Crediti Firstarianis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 373,406 Crediti Firstarianis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies, and Overlord Daniel Mercury's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. 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 8,195th in the world and 141st in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,295.15 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
