The United Socialist States of Blackbird is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.227 billion Blackbirdians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackbird City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Blackbirdian economy, worth 676 trillion Proletarian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 25,809 Proletarian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Blackbird's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Blackbird after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Blackbird's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackbird's national animal is the snowshoe rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
