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 notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.663 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 16.5%.

The powerhouse Firstarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,402 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 rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 384,220 Firania Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. 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 1,379th in 10000 Islands and 95,395th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 4 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
