The Damnation of Blicia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Andrew Garther with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.269 billion Noramerics 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hadden. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Norameric economy, worth 165 trillion Cyrpto-currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 130,400 Cyrpto-currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Norameric bee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blicia's national animal is the Golden Californian Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Militarism.

Blicia is ranked 46,518th in the world and 2,472nd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 62.12 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
