The Republic of Blackgear is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser Launex with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.669 billion Blackgearians 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 government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxburgo. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blackgearian economy, worth 370 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,906 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, interest in globalism never flags, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackgear's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blackgear is ranked 139,259th in the world and 7,089th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
