The Military crown of Blueflarst is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ma Birla Skelington with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, smutty television, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.173 billion Skeletons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Roma. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blueflarstian economy, worth 665 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,681 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and Griphus-wagons to Nova Roma are often canceled due to excessive levels of manure on the roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blueflarst's national animal is the Griphus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Magic and esoterism.

Blueflarst is ranked 43,809th in the world and 82nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 183,426.37 Standard Monetary Units.
