The Incorporated States of Blackhelm Confederacy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lucius Blackhelm with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.873 billion Blackhelm Confederacyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.5%.

The thriving Blackhelm Confederacyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,668 trillion Confederate Credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,425 Confederate Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 279,316 per year while the poor average 20,208, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Blackhelm Confederacy with a very polite populace, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Blackhelm Confederacy, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Blackhelm Confederacy's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Blackhelm Confederacy is ranked 124,030th in the world and 8th in Astyria for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40 on the Rand Index.
