The Empire of The Promethean Fists is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Heino Berezin with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.723 billion Prometheans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyros. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Promethean economy, worth a remarkable 3,824 trillion Cogs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 204,257 Cogs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 816,623 per year while the poor average 34,325, a ratio of 23.8 to 1.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, and embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Promethean Fists's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Cult of Flesh and Iron.

The Promethean Fists is ranked 69,394th in the world and 84th in Texas for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,856.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
