Despite the strict authoritarian rule of the Fire Nation, the children are also badass.
They like to hold crazy secret parties in caves. They are so awesome that Aang steals clothes from the gym locker room and Katara dresses like a slut just so they can get down on the dance floor.
The Fire Nation also has really badass circuses.
While I couldn't find a picture of it, Azula tells one of the acrobats to perform her routine with the safety net on fire and wild (and probably poisonous) animals run around wildly. Did I also mention this acrobat was one of Azula's childhood friends?
In the Fire Nation, circuses aren't fun unless your friend is in mortal danger.
The Fire Nation is also the most phsyically fit country on Earth. Elderly men up to 80 years old are usually very muscular.
Fire Benders are also not limited to fire. Some of them can shoot lighting out of their finger tips. The explanation for this is that lightning is just "cold fire", even though Lightning and Fire are completely different, and Lightning is hotter than fire (hotter than the surface of the sun for that matter) but I digress it's still badass.
Fashion is also amazing in the Fire Nation. For example, their soldiers look like what would happen if the Power Rangers were created by Nazi's.
I also managed to find a picture of operation "lol just burn firetrucking everything"
I think they are burning the Ocean too, which just shows that how little they give a shit, which is badass.
To protect the great Fire Nation from sea invasion (despite having the best fleet anyway) they built a giant metal net to stop ships in their path.
And then they set it on fire, for good measure.
So why did the Fire Nation lose with pretty much an advantage in everything?
They decided to start a war when they didn't have Jesus on their side.
That and bratty teenagers were basically in charge of the military.
