The United Socialist States of Blackbird is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.327 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 the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackbird City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

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. Blackbird's national animal is the snowshoe rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Proletarian Credit.

Blackbird is ranked 64th in The Proletariat Coalition and 112,445th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -667.6 Insults Per Minute (net).
