The Hive City of Blue Embassy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.017 billion Blue Embassyians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpibah. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Embassyian economy, worth a remarkable 5,611 trillion Vixas 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. 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 amazing 329,770 Vixas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, rumor has it that Governor has won three lotteries in a row, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime is totally unknown. Blue Embassy's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Blue Embassy is ranked 2,266th in the world and 14th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Secular, with 99.07 Atheism Rate.
