The Confederacy of Blayredeshia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Blayre V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.334 billion Blayredeshian Marks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, 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 55.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Blayredeshian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Tengerina 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 243,869 Tengerina Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 712,438 per year while the poor average 65,921, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, Blayredeshia isn't what it used to be, the full title of Hon Emperor Blayre V Vcte Mgve MF CBLM GCBE runs to several pages, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 Christianity.

Blayredeshia is ranked 2,048th in the world and 2nd in The Hole To Hide In for Most Patriotic, with 65.2 Flags saluted per person per day.
