The Blood Canvas

Population1.602 billion


The Dictatorship of The Blood Canvas is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.602 billion Blood Canvasians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.6%.

The thriving Blood Canvasian economy, worth 78.7 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 49,103 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy, and the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. The Blood Canvas's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Blood Canvas is ranked 62,971st in the world and 783rd in Artificial Solar System for Most Developed, scoring 61.67 on the Human Development Index.
