Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The OVERLORD Kingdom of Firstaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by OVERLORD Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.107 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, 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 6.6%.

The thriving Firstarian economy, worth a remarkable 5,683 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 352,843 Firania Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Calatia's water use, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 35th in 10000 Islands and 2,374th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 6 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
