Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederate States of Blumaria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Forrest Blanco with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.262 billion Blumarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakobsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Blumarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,423 trillion Blumsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 196,004 Blumsmarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,239 per year while the poor average 15,602, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine President Forrest Blanco is punishable by death, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Blumaria's national animal is the Great Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Blumaria is ranked 28th in North Africa and 118,157th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -2,610 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
