The Black State

Population540 million


The Kingdom of The Black State is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 540 million Black Stateans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The very strong Black Statean economy, worth 26.4 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 48,844 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 167,573 per year while the poor average 10,449, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Euthanasia is illegal, a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime is moderate. The Black State's national animal is the Pawn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Black State is ranked 87,153rd in the world and 2nd in The tea for Most Secular, with 17.79 Atheism Rate.
