|Leader||President Johnson E Blackwood III|
The Borderlands of Blackwood Coast is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Johnson E Blackwood III with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.223 billion Blackwoods 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Blackwood Coastian economy, worth 178 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,979 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 478,725 per year while the poor average 33,408, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.
Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blackwood Coast's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
