The Federation of Bla Ary is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Raiden Risolo with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.59 billion Bla Aryians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ary City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bla Aryian economy, worth 567 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 158,117 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 682,456 per year while the poor average 23,337, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and the well-to-do in The Council of The Multiverse are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bla Ary's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bla Ary is ranked 163,543rd in the world and 13th in The Council of The Multiverse for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -9.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
