“All Enduring, Each Achieving”
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Unified Coalition of Nations
The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Prime Minister Christian Knai with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.314 billion Blacariuns enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.
The powerhouse Blacarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,811 trillion Caprecs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 160,081 Caprecs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 713,962 per year while the poor average 22,299, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.
Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, all recreational drugs are legal, and seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blacaria's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular.
Blacaria is ranked 33rd in Unified Coalition of Nations and 48,722nd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 40.849 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
