The Commonwealth of Blacktree is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Keith Heating with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, aversion to nipples, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 800 million New Zealanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auckland. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blacktreean economy, worth 111 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,914 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blacktree's national animal is the Kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blacktree is ranked 184,424th in the world and 104th in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 394.39 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
