The Queen's State of BL is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and self-igniting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.675 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.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.
The very strong BLian economy, worth 261 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 46,133 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 447,298 per year while the poor average 229, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
Voting is voluntary, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. BL's national animal is the deer.
