The Rejected Realm of The Black Hawk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hawk Black with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.96 billion Black Hawks 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawktown. The average income tax rate is 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Hawkian economy, worth a remarkable 2,204 trillion Blacks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 116,295 Blacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, Hawk Black's Twitcher account is once again only used for bragging about the government's accomplishments, the nation is well known for its rather dull and family-friendly architecture, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Hawk's national animal is the hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Hawking.

The Black Hawk is ranked 159,236th in the world and 4,670th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 28,027.27 Standard Monetary Units.
