Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: The North Pacific


The Fairly Well-Liked Dominion of Blackshear41 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sir Irixis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.88 billion Blackshear41ians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Irixinia. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and much of Blackshear41's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackshear41's national animal is the seawolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the sirixii.

Blackshear41 is ranked 437th in The North Pacific and 16,115th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 151 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
