The Queen's State of BL is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.741 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 8th in Forever Silence and 38,943rd in the world for Best Weather, with 8 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
