The Borderlands of Cracked Fire is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 183 million Cracked Fireans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong Cracked Firean economy, worth 12.4 trillion Fires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 68,028 Fires, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", old age is the nation's leading method of execution, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime is relatively low. Cracked Fire's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Cracked Fire is ranked 192,215th in the world and 198th in Refugia for Largest Governments, scoring 9 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
