The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Premier Joreg Koch with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.793 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 86%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, diplomats in Blacaria are furious at constant police surveillance, and the nation leads New Coalition of Nations in per capita stalking. 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 23rd in New Coalition of Nations and 15,823rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 58 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
