The Grand Unitary State of Bloodshade is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ambrosia Von Carstein with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.09 billion Valyrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. The average income tax rate is 77.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bloodshadean economy, worth 943 trillion Blood Echoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 230,628 Blood Echoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. Crime is totally unknown. Bloodshade's national animal is the Demigryph, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Order.

Bloodshade is ranked 2,107th in the world and 50th in the Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 165.03 Quips Per Hour.
