The Confederacy of The First International is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Communal Proletarian Board Of Advisors with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 2.76 billion First Internationalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commune 001. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient First Internationalian economy, worth 424 trillion Standard Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 153,953 Standard Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Communal Proletarian Board Of Advisors Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, bizarre-looking creatures called 'pantherdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The First International's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The First International is ranked 10,204th in the world and 580th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,692.91 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
