The Imperial Armored Fortress of Firefights is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High General Zealot with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.042 billion Imperials are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominus Bolt. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,832 trillion thrones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,139 thrones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Firefights, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, military spending is on the increase, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firefights's national animal is the palatine eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Firefights is ranked 132,510th in the world and 122nd in Canada for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.88 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
