The Grand Kingdom of Blancpayne is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Queen Charlotte IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.121 billion Blancpayneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Irisville. The average income tax rate is 33.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Blancpaynean economy, worth a remarkable 1,271 trillion Blancs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 308,558 Blancs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one. Crime is totally unknown. Blancpayne's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Blancpaynean Catholicism.

Blancpayne is ranked 3,551st in the world and 8th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 43,966.06 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
