The Theocracy of Central Blepia is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 14 million Central Blepians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Central Blepian economy, worth 272 billion airspace lemons 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 led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Average income is 19,436 airspace lemons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is allowing greater autonomy for some regions in the hopes of quelling growing secessionist movements, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Blepia's national animal is the bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Central Blepia is ranked 63,041st in the world and 5th in Warzone Airspace for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,583.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
