The Federal Republican States of Flame1 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sister Flame with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.62 billion Flameses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flame. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Flame1ian economy, worth 797 trillion Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,454 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flame1's national animal is the Pitt bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is bernie sanders.

Flame1 is ranked 153,419th in the world and 30th in Westfalen Westphalia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.27 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
