The Sovereign Union of Bluquse is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overseer Jeffrey Ross with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.994 billion Blusens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jevena. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blusen economy, worth a remarkable 5,160 trillion Soves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 286,807 Soves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime is totally unknown. Bluquse's national animal is the Tuatara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Philosoism.

Bluquse is ranked 36,637th in the world and 17th in Democritus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 67.12 Effective Tax Rate.
