Principado Blake

Population1.028 billion

CapitalViolet House
LeaderReina Be Blake


The Principality of Principado Blake is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reina Be Blake with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.028 billion Blakenses are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Violet House. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Principado Blakean economy, worth 102 trillion Australs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,836 Australs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and most pop videos prominently feature the Principado Blakean flag. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Principado Blake's national animal is the Perricornio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Principado Blake is ranked 18,260th in the world and 197th in The Communist Bloc for Most Patriotic, with 36.03 flags saluted per person per day.
