The Dictatorship of BlackCyrcle is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 88 million BlackCyrcleans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The thriving BlackCyrclean economy, worth 5.56 trillion BlackDollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 63,229 BlackDollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,390 per year while the poor average 6,668, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. BlackCyrcle's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BlackCyrcle is ranked 59,137th in the world and 160th in The Dictatorial Paradise for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,937.19 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
