Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Christian Knai with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.289 billion Blacariuns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.2%.

The all-consuming Blacarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,435 trillion Caprecs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,318 Caprecs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 462,069 per year while the poor average 43,506, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

There's never enough space in space, some say Prime Minister Christian Knai has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Prime Minister Christian Knai's most personal functions, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blacaria's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular.

Blacaria is ranked 95,013th in the world and 21st in Eternity for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
