LeaderKaiser Launex


The Republic of Blackgear is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaiser Launex with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The democratic population of 1.256 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, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foxburgo. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blackgearian economy, worth 171 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 136,592 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Kaiser Launex is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and television executives are interested in turning Kaiser Launex's zany home life into a sitcom. 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 24,098th in the world and 1,296th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 110.14 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
