The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.94 billion Firstariani are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, 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 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth a remarkable 7,911 trillion Crediti Firstarianis a year, is broadly 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 360,584 Crediti Firstarianis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judicial torture is outsourced overseas, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Overlord Daniel Mercury Pics" has made Overlord Daniel Mercury's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 547th in the world and 12th in 10000 Islands for Highest Economic Output, with 7,911 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
