The Rum Soaked Eldritch Horror of Blue Wolf II is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Scardino with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 19.187 billion Blue Wolves enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northwind Citadel. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Wolvian economy, worth a remarkable 5,241 trillion raven skulls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 273,168 raven skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,740,474 per year while the poor average 17,667, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Blue Wolf II's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Blue Wolf II is ranked 36th in The North Pacific and 1,167th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 388 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
