The Kingdom of Blackthrone is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Bradley with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 989 million Blackthroneans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokomo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The powerhouse Blackthronean economy, worth 93.3 trillion Brinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 94,292 Brinas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 324,606 per year while the poor average 20,067, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Doctors will keep brain-dead coma patients ventilated for years in order to avoid accusations of allowing people to die, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blackthrone's national animal is the Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blackthrone is ranked 19,772nd in the world and 12th in New Western Atlantic for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 111.18 on the Hayek Index.
