The Principality of Blaqroc is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 315 million Blaqrocians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Blaqrocian economy, worth 3.78 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 11,989 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blaqroc's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blaqroc is ranked 189,855th in the world and 23rd in Selene for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 28.8 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
