Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The OVERLORD Kingdom of Firstaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by OVERLORD Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.571 billion Firstarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calatia. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Firstarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,791 trillion Firania Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 243,499 Firania Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Firstaria's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and much of Firstaria's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 Razgriz Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Brotherhood.

Firstaria is ranked 1,119th in 10000 Islands and 122,970th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -452 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
