The New Bluestocking Homeland

Population11.085 billion

LeaderDear Librarian


The Teetering Bookshelves of The New Bluestocking Homeland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dear Librarian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.085 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 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Homelandist economy, worth a remarkable 1,332 trillion Biblios a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,175 Biblios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 217,997th in the world and 410th in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 6.42 Insults Per Minute.
