The Principality of Blankenheim is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 543 million Blankenheimians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahrhütte. The average income tax rate is 14.3%.

The powerhouse Blankenheimian economy, worth 42.4 trillion Reichsthalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 78,009 Reichsthalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Blankenheim's radio stations, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blankenheim's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Blankenheim is ranked 35,342nd in the world and 30th in New West Indies for Highest Poor Incomes, with 42,907.21 Standard Monetary Units.
