The Free Colony of New Blarus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Braelley Daveolax with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.867 billion Blarusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blarus Loparxille. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Blarusian economy, worth 515 trillion Blue Orbs 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,741 Blue Orbs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in The Free Nations Region are never on time for important appointments, New Blarus has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and couples wishing to marry spend months at the circus trying to learn acrobatics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Blarus's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is New Light Of Blarus.

New Blarus is ranked 62,474th in the world and 129th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,759.23 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
