The Radiant Power of Blyskalia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Augustus Titus Pompeius Blyskalius with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.87 billion Blyskalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Social Policy, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vexicus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Blyskalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,543 trillion Asperas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 130,030 Asperas, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blyskalia's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Sol Invictus.

Blyskalia is ranked 26,521st in the world and 2nd in Security Council for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 3,048.99 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
