The Republic of Bluejack is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.121 billion Bluejackians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry is also considered important, while Education and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bluejackian economy, worth 814 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Uranium Mining and Woodchip 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 197,727 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All", and romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bluejack's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bluejack is ranked 308,416th in the world and 12th in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -25.48 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
