“Just about anyone can be”
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: High Orion Alliance
The Queen's State of BL is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.939 billion BLians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Retail, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology industries.
Voting is voluntary, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. BL's national animal is the deer, and its currency is the betale.
BL is ranked 107,291st in the world for Safest, scoring -26 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
