The Fairly Well-Liked Dominion of Blackshear41 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sir Irixis with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.137 billion Blackshear41ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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 Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Irixinia. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Blackshear41ian economy, worth 170 trillion sirixiis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 18,632 sirixiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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.
