LeaderPremier Mancer


The Technocracy of Blackphir is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Mancer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.237 billion Blackphirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carthus. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blackphirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,776 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 245,499 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Blackphirian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Premier Mancer, libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and Premier Mancer can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackphir's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blackphir is ranked 30,244th in the world and 1,316th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,560.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
