The Confederacy of Blayredeshia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Armand de la Croix with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.716 billion Blayredeshians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Blayredeshian economy, worth 626 trillion Blayre Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 230,680 Blayre Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 744,333 per year while the poor average 54,067, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, vacationing Blayredeshians expect to be treated as royalty, parents must decide between buying food and taking their children to the park, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blayredeshia's national animal is the Sable Antelope, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Judeo-Christian Religions.

Blayredeshia is ranked 58,689th in the world and 16th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,220.45 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
