The Northern Borderlands of Blackwood Coast is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Johnson E Blackwood III with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.404 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blackwood Coastian economy, worth 730 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 214,540 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. 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 13,513th in the world and 501st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 355,854.07 Standard Monetary Units.
