The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.903 billion Firstariani are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaria. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth an astonishing 10,182 trillion Crediti Firstarianis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 378,475 Crediti Firstarianis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firstaria's national animal is the Rondine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Osservatori della Notte.

Firstaria is ranked 1,091st in the world and 14th in 10000 Islands for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 67,978.36 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
