The OVERLORD Kingdom of Firstaria is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by OVERLORD Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.264 billion Firstarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calatia. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firstaria's national animal is the Razgriz Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Brotherhood, and its currency is the Firania Credit.

Firstaria is ranked 987th in 10000 Islands and 111,748th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -60 on the Enoch Index.
