The Northern Borderlands of Blackwood Coast is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Johnson E Blackwood III with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.496 billion Blackwoods enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire City. The average income tax rate is 60.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackwood Coastian economy, worth 499 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 199,991 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Many believe that President Johnson E Blackwood III's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blackwood Coast's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blackwood Coast is ranked 48,759th in the world and 2,394th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,214.43 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
