The Republic of Bluepillar is a small, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 40 million Bluepillarians 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 Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 53.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Bluepillarian economy, worth 454 billion Blue Coins 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 11,367 Blue Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bluepillar's national animal is the Caterpillar.

Bluepillar is ranked 103,909th in the world and 3,188th in the Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 537.55 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
