The Free Nationstate of Blue Ottawa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Finn Symons with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.716 billion Blue Ottawans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blue Ottawan economy, worth 200 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,057 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Blue Ottawa. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Ottawa's national animal is the Grey Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Blue Ottawa is ranked 68,669th in the world and 2,972nd in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 37.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
