The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Premier Joreg Koch with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.614 billion Blacariuns are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Secular, and its currency is the Caprec.

Blacaria is ranked 7th in Oracia and 108,401st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -32 Dawkins.
