The Regno dell'Overlord of Firstaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Daniel Mercury with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, digital currency, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.298 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, 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 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Firstariano economy, worth a remarkable 9,875 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 375,527 Crediti Firstarianis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Firstaria, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. 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 11,241st in the world and 219th in 10000 Islands for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 32.58 Bank.
