The Former Nation of Firehot is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.399 billion Laraniemians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laraniem Allied Army Corps. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Laraniemian economy, worth 28.9 trillion Laranomes a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,640 Laranomes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and Firehot has designated Laraniem Allied Army Corps as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firehot's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Firehot is ranked 227,858th in the world and 4th in Laraniem Allied Army Corps for Most Developed, scoring 46.76 on the Human Development Index.
