Republic of Fireboro

“In the name of progress.”


Nestled in the Eastern Plateau of the Great Lowlands, the Republic of Fireboro is known for its open borders and a policy of acceptance toward foreigners. Its settlements and garrisons straddle the rim and interior of a massive caldera, with its capital, also called Fireboro, located at the caldera’s heart. This unique geographical location provides the republic with rich and varied resources that fuel its economy and define its way of life, weaving a landscape of bustling activity and serene natural beauty.


The republic is led by a chancellor who serves as the head of government. Their duties extend beyond administrative work and include shaping the vision of the republic and steering it toward prosperity.

Legislation and policy are deemed a public affair, decided by the Representative Assembly, a group of six-hundred officials elected by the republic's citizens. The Assembly upholds the constitution, suggesting amendments when necessary, and oversees the inauguration of the chancellor, ensuring a smooth transition of power.


The Republic of Fireboro boasts a diverse and resilient economy. The fertile volcanic soil of its caldera is ideal for agriculture, while the rich mineral veins within the caldera’s rock drive a robust mining industry.
