The Sacrilegious Cult of Black Providence is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.748 billion Cultists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Cultist economy, worth 33.3 trillion animal sacrifices a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,881 animal sacrifices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Providence's national animal is the flying shadow octopus.

Black Providence is ranked 64,685th in the world and 2,962nd in Balder for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 47.42 Effective Tax Rate.
