The Kingdom of Blakenham is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alexander H with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.93 billion Blakehamians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Blakenhamian economy, worth 239 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,674 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, interest in globalism never flags, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blakenham's national animal is the Golden Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blakenham is ranked 166,384th in the world and 220th in The Western Isles for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.54 Kickbacks Per Hour.
