The People's Republic of First Technocratic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Ministry of Industry with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.245 billion First Citizens 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordwik. The average income tax rate is 91.2%.

The powerhouse First economy, worth a remarkable 1,486 trillion rationing tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 104,333 rationing tickets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, planespotters are emigrating in droves, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. First Technocratic's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

First Technocratic is ranked 185,900th in the world and 30th in Arctic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -5.66 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
