Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Blue Thorn is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.556 billion Blue Thornians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Blue Thornian economy, worth 51.6 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 3,546 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are jailed regularly and art-burning parties are common, teenagers are sent to jail for being out too late, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and none has been named as Blue Thorn's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Thorn's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Blue Thorn is ranked 131,798th in the world and 893rd in Ancient Lands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 30.14 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
