The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Christian Knai with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 11.86 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 68.7%.
The powerhouse Blacarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,897 trillion Caprecs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,966 Caprecs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,384 per year while the poor average 33,425, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, copyright laws have been abolished, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. 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.
