The Empire of Blackforge

Population40 million

AnimalBlacksteel Dragon

The Kingdom of The Empire of Blackforge is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 40 million Blackforgeans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 14.8%.

The Blackforgean economy, worth 2.07 trillion Forgemarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 51,635 Forgemarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, homophobia is off the menu, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of Blackforge's national animal is the Blacksteel Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Empire of Blackforge is ranked 134,853rd in the world and 5,273rd in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.

Most Average: 742nd in the region
