The Empire of Crazy Firemen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Firefighter Clemente with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.461 billion Crazy Firemenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seagrave. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Crazy Firemenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,993 trillion Brotherhoods a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,916 Brotherhoods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, the transit system is throwing poor people under the bus, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, and the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crazy Firemen's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Rising Phoenix.

Crazy Firemen is ranked 275,456th in the world and 6,735th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -30.95 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
