The Empire of Crazy Firemen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Firefighter Clemente with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 21.824 billion Crazy Firemenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Crazy Firemenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,372 trillion Brotherhoods a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,518 Brotherhoods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, the government loves seeing the little people fight, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and employers are keenest on employees who lack family values. 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 7,930th in the world and 201st in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.62 Years.
