The New Bluestocking Homeland

Population9.044 billion

LeaderDear Librarian


The Teetering Bookshelves of The New Bluestocking Homeland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dear Librarian with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.044 billion Bluestockings love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertad. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Homelandist economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion Biblios a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,481 Biblios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, interest in globalism never flags, astronauts take one small step for The New Bluestocking Homeland and one giant step backward from confrontation, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Bluestocking Homeland's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Bluestocking Homeland is ranked 10,975th in the world and 138th in Forest for Most Income Equality, scoring 83.12 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
