The Republic of Firstflame is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dudebro Whateverman with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and digital currency. The compassionate, devout population of 1.769 billion Idiots are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FirstFlame. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Firstflamean economy, worth 127 trillion Cliks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,162 Cliks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firstflame's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Firstness.

Firstflame is ranked 39,368th in the world and 3rd in Appalcadia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,422.86 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
