Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Arcade Universe of Blazing Samaritan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tron with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.229 billion Blazing Samaritanites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galaga. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blazing Samaritanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,639 trillion Arkanoids a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,176 Arkanoids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime is totally unknown. Blazing Samaritan's national animal is the Centipede, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dig Dugology.

Blazing Samaritan is ranked 401st in the world and 7th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 83.83 Whatever.
