The Empire of The Promethean Fists is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heino Berezin with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.972 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyros. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Promethean economy, worth a remarkable 3,879 trillion Cogs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 204,488 Cogs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,730 per year while the poor average 36,511, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

Food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 26,547th in the world and 55th in Texas for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 12,300.54 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
