The United States of BludHaven is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by yin yang with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.261 billion BludHavenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of haven. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BludHavenian economy, worth 667 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,893 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and it's not mass murder when the government does it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BludHaven's national animal is the ice dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is dragonizen.

BludHaven is ranked 10,657th in the world and 347th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,181.51 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
