The Arch Kingdom of Blacaria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Christian Knai with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.122 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 73.5%.

The all-consuming Blacarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,572 trillion Caprecs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,580 Caprecs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 462,828 per year while the poor average 43,577, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. 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 156,916th in the world and 20th in Eternity for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 14.52 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
