The Constitutional Monarchy of Firtopia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Haggard with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.623 billion Firtopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westwood. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Firtopian economy, worth 787 trillion Dollies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,371 Dollies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Preservative-laden Firtopian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Firtopia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Firtopia is ranked 17,587th in the world and 882nd in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,554.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
