The Northern Borderlands of Blackwood Coast is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Johnson E Blackwood III with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.816 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 Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire City. The average income tax rate is 34.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Blackwood Coastian economy, worth 309 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 170,386 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany President Johnson E Blackwood III to meetings with foreign heads of state, and freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink. 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 28,845th in the world and 1,337th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,306.01 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
