Black Spears

Population688 million

CapitalThe GeoFront


The Commonwealth of Black Spears is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 million Spearsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The GeoFront. The average income tax rate is 44.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Black Spearsian economy, worth 59.2 trillion CSCS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 86,006 CSCS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Spears's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Black Spears is ranked 21,089th in the world and 59th in Thaecia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 71,030.41 Standard Monetary Units.
