The Hive City of Blue Embassy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Governor with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.008 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, with Environment and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 4,914 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 327,444 Vixas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, people talk about things being better when men were men, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. 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 16,914th in the world and 90th in Capitalist Paradise for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
