The It of Blazing Samaritan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pennywise with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.846 billion Blazing Samaritanites 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Derry. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Blazing Samaritanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,902 trillion Balloons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 187,186 Balloons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 528,388 per year while the poor average 53,082, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, books are so highly regarded in Blazing Samaritan that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Blazing Samaritan's national animal is the Demonic clown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Demonology.
