Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Blackbird is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.645 billion Blackbirdians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackbird City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Blackbirdian economy, worth a remarkable 5,672 trillion Proletarian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 179,241 Proletarian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Blackbird's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Blackbird after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Blackbird's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackbird's national animal is the snowshoe rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blackbird is ranked 442nd in the world and 2nd in The Proletariat Coalition for Healthiest Citizens, with 37.14 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
