The Constitutional Monarchy of Firtopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Haggard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.914 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 60.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Firtopian economy, worth 589 trillion Dollies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,717 Dollies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, and the Firtopian basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market. 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 26,044th in the world and 763rd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.7 on the Human Development Index.
