The Holy Red Empire of Black Friday is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.528 billion Black Fridayians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bone City. The average income tax rate is 26.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Black Fridayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,799 trillion Irish golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 151,068 Irish golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Black Fridayian grocery store, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Black Friday's national animal is the black mamba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
