The People's Republic of Blakkland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kofi Balagoon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.144 billion New Afrikans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garvey. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blakklandian economy, worth 412 trillion Ecoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 192,440 Ecoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is avowedly secular, the only violent vigilantes are the ones in police uniforms, Blakkland Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime is totally unknown. Blakkland's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Afrocentrism.

Blakkland is ranked 50,827th in the world and 263rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
