The Confederate States of Blumaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Friedrich Wolff with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.141 billion Blumarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakobsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Blumarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,621 trillion Blumsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 199,158 Blumsmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,480,408 per year while the poor average 7,926, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine President Friedrich Wolff is punishable by death, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Blumaria's national animal is the Great Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Blumaria is ranked 117,453rd in the world and 48th in North Africa for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.24 Crimes Per Hour.
