The United Socialist States of Bluenstein is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Agent Blue with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.056 billion Bluensteinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bluensteinian economy, worth 114 trillion Blueroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 108,624 Blueroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bluenstein's national animal is the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bluenstein is ranked 27,507th in the world and 346th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 108,624.95 Standard Monetary Units.
